But the job of graduation speaker is to give you some wisdom that I have acquired over the years.
So that's what I am gonna do.
Here's a little bit of what I know.
People who live in glass houses should never throw stones.
But they should always wear pants.
International superstar race car driver Lewis Hamilton has been openly vocal
about his stance on environmental issues.
In 2019, for example, he posted on his Instagram Stories,
"Extinction of our race becoming more and more likely as we overuse our resources.
The world is a messed up place.
World leaders either uneducated or don't care about the environment at all."
But as the saying goes, he who lives in a glass house should not throw stones.
Hamilton quickly received criticism for his comments,
considering that he still drives and travels globally for Formula One, which has a huge carbon footprint.
Okay, so that's the first case of matricide.
And the book is very interesting.
'Cause it's about witch trials and how people thought back then.
But it doesn't stop there.
There were 7 more men, on my father's side, starting then, Cornells, that were all murderers.
Okay, now this gives one a little pause.
'Cause my father himself, and my 3 uncles, in World War II,
were all conscientious objectors, all pussycats.
But every once in a while, Lizzie Borden, like 3 times a century.
And we're kind of due.
So the moral of the story is:
people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
But more likely is this.
