John Stewart Speaks to the Graduates

Stewart:Even if you don’t, you won’t have trouble surpassing my generation. If you end up getting your picture taken next to a naked pile of enemy prisoners and don’t give the thumbs up, you outdid us.

“I know we were supposed to bequeath to the next generation a world better than the one we were handed, so sorry. But here’s the good news, you fix this thing, you’re the new greatest generation, people.

What piece of wisdom can I impart to you about my journey that will somehow ease your transition from college back to your parents’ basement?”

Concentration is important!
