What's that song?

Postby The Prof » 21 Apr 2020, 19:26

It's maybe 15-20 years old.
A teacher talking to a class of students giving them advice for the future.
I think it was quite big but I can't figure out how to search for it.
Does it ring any bells with anyone?

I believe it was a commencement speech given by Kurt Vonnegut.

A newspaper column by Mary Schmich.

Unless your sources say otherwise, of course.

But mistakenly attributed at the time to Vonnegut because the author was copping his style. If I recall there was some hubbub about it and who wrote it. No sources needed in this case.
