INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE For the Class of 2011

During this season of graduations, many different types of people are asked to give speeches, sometimes they are boring and sometimes worth listening to. 
In running an eBay online store, I treasure and still marvel at the internet and the business it has allowed me to build.  However, I know I still need human contact, not just the kind on the internet.  Unfortunately too many of us keep our faces down, looking at our phones, computers, etc. and fail to make that oh so important eye contact.
In watching the news tonight, I heard clips of some commencement speeches and this one really got to me and thought I would share it.

"So if you want to get something done in the world, never forget – ultimately -- you have to get out of FaceBook and into somebody’s face."
-----Thomas Friedman

Congratulations to the Class of 2011!!!!
