David Foster Wallace commencement speech at Kenyon College

My brother Dan sent me the text of this David Foster Wallace commencement speech. It’s pretty remarkable. Wallace tells Kenyon College grads about something taken for granted, not-often discussed, that will soon be a part of their lives. I won’t summarize it. You need to get there yourself. The deceased¬†author’s words¬†are very much worth the couple minutes it takes to read.
