You Are Not Special

Great speech by David McCullough, Jr. to the 2012 graduating class at Wellesley High School. Trying to get the point across that everyone has the opportunity for potential, but just existing does not make you special– doing something extraordinary does. I find it inspirational for anyone– not just graduating high school seniors. It’s a little long, but worth watching– enjoy!

    Love the quote from David McCullough,
    “Climb the mountain to see the world, not for the world to see you” Soo true!! Thank you for sharing

      Definitely! Sometimes, people get so wrapped up in getting noticed, they forget to take a look around.
