Stanford University Graduation 2016

Stanford University has a proud tradition that may well be unique.  It’s called the Wacky Walk.  At the commencement ceremony graduates enter the stadium dressed in costume.  No, I’m not making this up.  The choice of attire is usually determined by college major, future career prospects, or enthusiasm for a particular activity.  Why these young graduates decided collect their diplomas dressed as fast food workers I have no idea.  Why incur student debit simply to work at a burger joint?  I attended today’s graduation in hopes of capturing a few good images.  However I was thrilled and spellbound by Ken Burns’ fantastic commencement address.  Please click on the hyperlink and watch it.  I want as many people as possible to hear and consider what Ken Burns had to say.
