Who was definitely in the minority.
Subject: Harvard Commencement Speech
Speaking of America being the last bastion of freedom, “the shining city on a hill” so eloquently expressed by President Ronald Regan. I hope you will take the time to watch a brief speech given at Harvard on May 3, 2022, by a young female graduate. It lasts for just five minutes but it is well worth your time.
At Harvard, as you may know, there are 12 ‘Houses’, and this senior, Julie Hartman, Harvard Class of 2022, was chosen by the Headmaster of her House to give a commencement speech — each House Headmaster chooses someone to give a speech. Julie delivered this address on May 3, 2022, at the Harvard Chapel. When she finished, she received no applause or recognition of appreciation. The silence was deafening! But her words were refreshing and prescient…and gave me hope that the values this country stands for have not entirely vanished. You may click on the link below to hear this address in its entirety.
