  1. I did not have high hopes for the commencement address and was very happy to be proven wrong. Meredith Vieira inspired not only the young adults moving forward, BU degrees in hand, but the legions of parents and others who came to bear witness and celebrate the milestone achievement. Ms. Vieria’s speech was spot on about the choices that must be made at all stages of life, about the sometimes unexpected paths that appear before us, and about the need for showing grit. She certainly has it, and I appreciate her generosity in sharing her experience and advice with all of us! Bravo!
