In my ministry I have been a chaplain to a high school and now a chaplain at a university Newman Center, so I have attended more graduation commencements than I care to remember.  Usually I have already forgotten the commencement speech five minutes after it has been given.  This speech is different.  I can honestly say that I would place this speech on the very, very short list of commencement speeches that I enjoyed, agreed with and will actually remember anything from.

Thank you Mr. McCullough for your words!

Congratulations graduates!  Remember to “climb the mountain not so the world can gaze on you but so you can enjoy the view!”
