This I Believe Rhode Island: Graduation
Tell the truth. How many of you can recall the names of your graduation or commencement speakers? Most likely, many of us just came up empty. Perhaps graduates let their minds drift during these all-too-predictable speeches. Or they reflect on precious memories that are bound to fade, or fantasize about our uncertain futures. How many of us really focused on the graduation speaker’s skillfully crafted words? Well, graduation season is fast approaching. Listen very carefully to a very unusual graduation speech imagined by Sarah Morenon.
Sarah Morenon went to the University of Rhode Island at age 40 to get a library masters degree to become a school librarian. She lives in Providence with her husband and has three grown children.
