Jon Bon Jovi gave one of the best commencement speeches this year. Instead of just giving an inspirational speech to motivate graduates transitioning into adulthood, he wrote them a song called “Reunion” and rocked out on stage.
“As the night ignites the day, go make some memories along the way,” Bon Jovi sang to Rutgers graduates with the passion of a dozen Bob Dylans. “Or write your song, sing along, love your life. Learn to laugh, dare to dance, touch the sky. Take pictures each step of the way. Make this the best of the rest of your days. Start your revolution. And I’ll see you at the reunion.”
