COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS: CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS

3 June 2017 - In his 18 minute commencement address to the graduates of Cardigan Mountain School (9th Grade), Chief Justice John Roberts extends sage advice while hoping the students encounter the following experiences:

  • Be treated unfairly to know the value of justice
  • Suffer betrayal to understand the importance of loyalty
  • Experience loneliness to value friendships and not take people for granted
  • Endure bad luck to understand the role of chance in their lives
  • Suffer losses where opponents gloat to understand the importance of sportsmanship
  • Be ignored to know the importance of listening to others
  • Experience enough pain to learn compassion
