I thought Michelle Obama’s first commencment address totally rocked, so I am posting the links to it here. The ending was especially good, so if you are short of time, listen to part 3

And since I spent some time growing up in Merced, and it is one my favorite Central Valley cities, the commensement address links are followed by a Merced link festival.
