First, let me congratulate the Class of 2020.  You have achieved much.  Your course of study was in a foreign language.  Having studied 8 foreign languages, I know that is not easy.  You have also completed your studies under difficult circumstances.  Obtaining and keeping a job is not easy now.  Second, let me tell you my hopes for you: that you will put to good use what you have learned at STL and that you will contribute to strengthening the rule of law and human flourishing.  Best wishes.” —Preston Torbert

Congratulations to the Class of 2020. Under normal circumstances, your achievement would be worthy of high praise and respect. But knowing the state of the planet, your graduation is an unmistakable moment of hope for all who care about justice. You are poised to do great things and it is not an overstatement in the least to acknowledge how much we need you. It has been one of the great privileges of my life to come to know many of you. Be well and safe. And joyful in engaging your life to the lives of others.” —Mark Rosenbaum
