Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
The world lost a visionary yesterday. The loss of Steve Jobs traveled quickly yesterday afternoon, mostly on devices he created. All over the world people mourned the death of someone they never met. There was no negativity, only pure feelings of love and sadness as people quoted the words of inspiration that made them all want to be better people. Steve Jobs was fearless in his determination to learn new things. To move on from a bad situation and turn it into an opportunity. It would seem that he had the midas touch; everything he touched turn to gold. That was because he believed in himself and he wasn't afraid to fail.
This speech has some of the best words to live by I have ever heard. Watching it yesterday brought tears to my eyes, knowing that this amazing spirit is no longer with us. I hope we all follow his example and strive for the true meaning of our lives.
RIP Steve, you were a true American hero.
