Hillary Clinton Makes a Call to Service at NYU Commencement

Unemployment’s on the rise.  There’s a global economic recession.  And thousands of college students are graduating.   These new graduates have quite a journey ahead of them. Hillary Clinton

Yesterday was New York University’s commencement at the brand-new Yankee Stadium where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement address and stressed that “the biggest challenges we face today will be solved by the 60 percent of the world’s population under the age of 30.”

Secretary Clinton highlighted the social networking and new technologies available for young people to become “citizen diplomats, citizen activists, to solve problems one by one that will give in to hard work, patience, and persistence, and will then aggregate to the solutions we seek.”
