This speech is seminal and right on and was given at a prestigious small college about 40 miles from my house. Thanks Lauren for sharing it. Enjoy and Be Free of Speech !
I graduated on Friday with my M.A. in English Literature. I did this degree full time over the last two years as I worked full time. I graduated with a 4.0, which was an act of humongous will and stubbornness.
I am very proud of my degree. I wrote my thesis on the witch Erichtho and passed my defense with distinction. Hopefully in the future I can continue the little scholarship on this very interesting Greek witch and contribute to the witchcraft discourse in an academic way.
At graduation, I was confronted with an invocation by a Catholic priest who ignored every non Christian (well really, every non Catholic) in the room. It was uncomfortable. I thought it was in poor taste from a university that celebrates diversity.
Our speakers were decent enough, they had some interesting things to say, but nothing that truly moved and inspired me.
