Many a college graduate will soon forget who served as his or her commencement speaker, but the students graduating this year from the University of Missouri’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources probably won’t have that lack of memory. Vice President Dick Cheney delivered the commencement address, telling the students it’s important to make plans in life but to always be open to unexpected opportunities that might come along. The Vice President used his own life as an example of how plans change. He says he never expected to be elected to Congress, serve as a Cabinet Secretary, and eventually be elected Vice President of the United States. Cheney says that while many people suffer setbacks in life, they must never give up because those setbacks will serve as inspirations that will become life’s turning points.
