New England Tech 2013 Commencement Featured On CBS News

During their annual commencement speaker wrap-up segment, CBS This Morning (News) showcased a portion of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s commencement speech given to the 2013 graduates at Rhode Island’s New England Institute of Technology.

In the segment, Abdul-Jabbar told graduates that they should not worry about being “the future,” something many children are told their entire lives. It is a heavy burden, he said, “what you are is the present” he concluded.
