It’s also pulled the curtain back on another hard truth, something that we all have to eventually accept once our childhood comes to an end. All those adults that you used to think were in charge and knew what they were doing? Turns out that they don’t have all the answers. A lot of them aren’t even asking the right questions. So, if the world’s going to get better, it going to be up to you.

這也揭開另一個殘酷的事實,一個我們一旦結束童年就得面對的事。那就是,那些你以前你以為自己在做什麼的大人,原來根本不知道,他們當中很多人甚至問錯了問題,所以,如果要這世界變得更好,只能靠你了喔!

But what remains true is that your graduation marks your passage into adulthood — the time when you begin to take charge of your own life. It’s when you get to decide what’s important to you: the kind of career you want to pursue. Who you want to build a family with. The values you want to live by. And given the current state of the world, that may be kind of scary.

依然存在的事實是,畢業代表你要"轉大人"了,是時候自己作主了,你得決定什麼對你真正重要,選擇自己的職業,伴侶,價值觀...等等。以現在社會狀況來看,可能有點恐怖。

And finally, build a community. No one does big things by themselves. Right now, when people are scared, it’s easy to be cynical and say let me just look out for myself, or my family, or people who look or think or pray like me. But if we’re going to get through these difficult times; if we’re going to create a world where everybody has the opportunity to find a job, and afford college; if we’re going to save the environment and defeat future pandemics, then we’re going to have to do it together.

最後,建立社群。沒有偉人孤軍奮戰的,現在當人們惶恐德的時候,很容易憤世嫉俗、只顧自己,自己的家庭,或那些和我一樣的人,但如果我們要克服這些困難,讓每個人溫飽,讀得起大學,守護環境以免病毒捲土重來,只能團結一心。

Second, do what you think is right. Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy — that’s how little kids think. Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way — which is why things are so screwed up.I hope that instead, you decide to ground yourself in values that last, like honesty, hard work, responsibility, fairness, generosity, respect for others. 

第二,做你認為正確的事。很多人只想作輕鬆簡單的事,像個小屁孩一樣,不幸的是現在很多所謂的大人,包括有高級頭銜,掌握大權的人也不過如此,這就是為什麼這個世界爛成這樣的原因,相反地,你應該堅守心中的價值,誠信、用功、責任、公正、大器、尊重別人。

Graduating is a big achievement under any circumstances, some of you have overcome serious obstacles along the way. Whether it was illness or parent losing a job, or living in a neighborhood where people too often count you out. Along with the usual challenges of growing up, all of you have to deal with the added pressure of social media, reports of school shooting, and the specter of climate change.

畢業在任何情況下都是大事,你們有些人經歷巨大挑戰,包括疾病,父母失業,遭受排擠。除了這些以外,你們這一代更要面對社群媒體的壓力,校園槍擊報導和氣候變遷。
