what a courageous speech by an articulate young man. zach walls talks about what it means for him to have been raised by two lesbians.

the video is a little older, but just crossed my way via friends’ posts of the moveon shoutout.

probably the most inspirational commencement speech ever, and what i find is jobs’ greatest piece of work. his other work is well documented by steven levy.

RIP, steve.

“almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. you are already naked. there is no reason not to follow your heart.”
