1. Thank you for the link. I will...

...watch it this afternoon If it's anything like Northeastern last year, it will be excellent.

2. Thanks

I had read lots of comments on the speech and articles summarizing it, but had not seen a link other than to watch live - when I couldn't. It sounds incredibly good.

I like that he makes the point that these are not normal times - so a typical nonpartisan speech would ignore that people need both pushes to be active and hope through perspective that the US can be made right again.

3. WoW!!!! I just watched and he was incredible

Especially in the last few minutes when he spoke to the students. I am filled with so many mixed emotions -- not just more hopeful due to the optimism that he expressed that people can make the country better. Oddly, more than almost anything in the last 4 years or 12 and a half years - I wish this exceptional, good, brilliant man could have been our President.

It does make me realize that his Kerry scholars project at Yale is an amazing gift to the world. I love that for a very elite group of students, he will be someone who helps them refine their own view of how to serve the world. I hope that his combination of passion and optimism that good solutions can be found informs some of the Yale students and that they join others as leaders of the future.
