Yes, it’s what all you guys are thinking – I got to see President Bill Clinton. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet him but I was close enough that to get a crystal clear video of him walking out of the ceremony. Let’s just talk about how I didn’t even know he was coming to my University. I mean what kind of American am I? My basketball coach texted Alex and I asking if we were interested in seeing Bill Clinton. My answer was “Of course!!!!!!!!! It’s WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON.”
My school Dublin City University was awarding honorary degrees to President Clinton along with two other awardees Dr. Martin Naughton, KBE, and Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy. These three people were chosen because of all the hard work that they had put into making Ireland a better country.
President Clinton talked about everyone having a story, and how those stories make us different but not better than one another. His overall message was about finding ways to work together. He stated that we should continue to work with one another and not against each other by saying, “Love your neighbour like yourself”. While I was sad that I didn’t get to meet him face to face, I am glad that I at least had the opportunity to hear him speak.
