Nobody knows the world graduates will face

(Continued)

While you are mastering the skill sets that countless innovations over the last decade or two require for you to earn a decent living, some of those skills are very likely going to be obsolete in 10 or 20 years because of whatever the next Facebook or Twitter will be.

But the good news is that yours is a generation that has adapted beautifully to whatever has come along, and there’s no reason to think you won’t be up to learning whatever you need to succeed.

While nobody can predict the future, there are valuable lessons to be retained from the past. Your parents’ and teachers’ life experiences are hard-earned, valuable and well-worth your time.

Oh, and one thing that never changes: If you live your life with honor and integrity, you’ll do just fine, no matter what challenges “The Future” may bring.
