First Lady to College Grads: Prepare for Disappointment

by Nathan Harden

First Lady Michelle Obama picked up an honorary doctorate at Eastern Kentucky University this week. She also gave the commencment address. One particular line in her speech caught my ear: “How are you going to respond when you don’t get that job you had your heart set on?” she asked the crowd of young graduates.

A suitable question for these tepid economic times, don’t you think?
