Julie Andrews commencement speech at U of Colorado Boulder: “Use your knowledge and heart to stand up for those who can’t stand. Speak for those who can’t speak. Be a beacon of light, for those whose lives have become dark. Be a part of all that is good and decent. Be an ambassador for the kind of world you want to live in.”
