Failures of Kindness

I am knee deep in two brain-warping activities today: editing and reviewing really terrible, terrible photos (not in quality, but in subject matter). From time to time, I need a bit of brain bleach, and that’s what my Bloglovin role is for (which replaced my Google Reader, RIP). So as I was perusing the blog entries, I came across this one, from a lifestyle blog I read, Cup of Joe.

In it she highlights a graduation speech by George Saunders, given this year at Syracuse University, and it’s such a truly good thing to read, in that it’s wonderfully written and relevant to all of us as citizens of this earth (and in that so many of us see the results of what he calls “failures of kindness”), that I decided to post it. You can read the full speech, printed last week in the New York Times, here. It may be the best thing you read all day.
