Listening to My Old Hart High Graduation Speech: Little Did I Know I Would Be Hammered By Affirmative Action

I've got a little bit of audio showing what I was like as a public speaker back in 1975.  I think it is sad that the vibrant, awkward, sensitive young man revealed in the speech would go on to face a huge number of racial and ethnic barriers to success simply because he was a young Armenian-American and not the member of a more politically powerful minority group.

This should bring back some warm memories from over 35 years ago.  Especially for members of the graduating class of Hart High and their relatives in attendance.
