Obama's Advice to Grads: Don't Believe the Cynics

Saturday, 15 May 2010 09:16 AM

 


President Barack Obama has some advice for graduates who are about to embark on the next chapter of their lives.

He says young people are growing up during a time of "great challenge" and "sweeping change" — and that the voices of cynicism and pessimism seem the loudest on television and in newspapers and blogs.

Writing in "Parade" magazine, the president says: "Don't believe them." He says Americans have a proud history of persevering through difficult times.

Obama carries his commencement message next Saturday to graduates of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. In June he speaks at a high school in Kalamazoo, Mich. He's also given commencement speeches at the University of Michigan and Virginia's Hampton University.
