So moving. So powerful. So compassionate.
We’ve heard those words before about a college commencement address. But there might not have been anything as amazing as Facebook COO’s Sheryl Sandberg’s remarks at my son’s Cal graduation on Saturday. Sheryl spoke publicly for the first time about her husband’s sudden death last year. She cried periodically throughout – and we all cried with her.
But rather than merely dwell on her misfortune, she leaned on her experience to impart the wisdom she has learned over the past year, struggling to comprehend the incomprehensible. There are many quotes worth noting – but best to read the entire transcript. And at least take in this gem:
You are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. Like a muscle, you can build it up, draw on it when you need it. In that process you will figure out who you really are — and you just might become the very best version of yourself.
You also can watch this amazing speech yourself. And here’s a pic of Sheryl with my sister – who is 25 years younger than me – an hour before the event. Sheryl is so full of passion & energy!
