Down on humanity? Well, give this a whirl: A graduation speech from a palpably nervous, ridiculously charismatic young man named Evan Young is making the rounds — and deservedly so. Without giving anything away, we’ll just say the brief video demands your undivided attention.
Devoid of cynicism yet brimming with insight, Young’s rationale as to why he asked his best girlfriend out — despite the fact that he’s gay — has the potential to change the way you view your relationships. His speech becomes a persuasive appeal to reconsider our place in the world, and the ways in which we’re all connected — whether we like it or not.
Though it’s impossible to know what’s to become of Young in the years to come, one thing’s for certain: The guy’s going places. Encore!
We can disagree with each other and still respect each other.
