Second Sight Saturday - You're Not Special

I originally posted this on June 28, 2012.  Since it is commencement season, I thought it would be a good time to revisit this post.
By now, we've all heard or read about snippets of David McCullough Jr.'s "You're Not Special" commencement address, but the entire speech is a thing of beauty.  Apparently, his father isn't the only gifted writer in the family.  More importantly, the act of such a talented writer dedicating his life to education rather than material pursuits, truly exemplifies the advice dispensed in his speech.  Enjoy the video below:

Happy reading,
