Commencement Speaker Tells Graduates They Are All Going To Die, He’s Right
“You are all going to die.”
Joss Whedon, famed writer, director, and living symbol of nerdly equality, opened Wesleyan University’s graduation commencement speech with this statement, and like most things that issue forth from Whedon the humor of the statement masked a deep truth about living.
We have all heard the phrase “Live like You’re dying” and in this speech Whedon points out that all who are living have begun to die. Interesting perspective to think about. Below is Whedon’s speech in it’s entirety.
