In a nice commencement speech at the University of Pennsylvania, singer-songwriter John Legend called for empathy, activism, hard truth-telling. Citing our wars and economic crises, he blasted those in power who "either didn't
look hard enough for the truth, or didn't listen to those voices that
could tell them where the truth lived."
"As a nation – and as a world – we need more truth.
Let me repeat that. We need more truth."
