Denzel Washington gives commencement speech



Video here.

It isn't especially long. He makes 3 points:
1 Put God first
2 Work hard, plan, and discipline yourself.
3 Pray

When he was flunking out of college, and didn't know what he would do next, a woman at his mother's beauty parlor said she had a prophetic message, that he would travel and speak to people all over the world--and he has. When he started to become successful and a little proud of himself, his mother reminded him that he hadn't done it without God's help and people praying for him.

I liked it!greengrin

Actually, I have studied in a broad range.

And, I am more likely to post things here that I find to be of value, while I am likely not to post things that broaden my scope of what people are saying without value.
