On May 19th I serendipitously tuned into one of my favorite radio programs: Democracy Now. Host Amy Goodman played the taped commencement speech soul-singer John Legend delivered at the U. of Pennsylvania.
Both insightful and inspiring, his speech resonated with me especially after visiting and "bearing witness" to the living and working conditions of tomato pickers in Immokalee, Florida. For a more humane and just world, when we see such atrocities, we must take action.
Check out Legend's speech on Democracy Now's website.
