Ellen DeGeneres Common Cement Speech

H/t to TELP for this one.

I generally don't want to watch a 10-minute video. But Elizabeth was right. This one is well worth watching. (And you'll understand my title a few minutes into the video.)

I wish someone had said this at my college graduation.

Sit down. Put you beverage down, for the sake of your keyboard.

And watch.

oh yes--

life is a dance
with steps you don't know
join the dance
learn as you go

That was wonderful. I normally don't watch 10 minute videos either, but that one was so worth it. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for the lyrics, Ann. Quite apt!

Laura, I gotta thank Elizabeth for it. Glad you enjoyed it.

Lisa, this is marvelous. Abundant thanks to you and Elizabeth. You do realize that I will need to steal this. How proud I am that a university in my beloved city had the audacity and the cleverness to invite Ellen. What a treasure! What a wonderful and inspirational speech.

Yes, I was rather surprised that a New Orleans school would invite her. But it's wonderful, indeed.

And as MP says (more or less): Freely I steal. Freely I give. ;-)
