George W. Bush

To those of you who received honors, awards, and distinctions, I say, well done. And to the C students, I say, you, too, can be president of the United States.

Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.

What you do is as important as anything government does. I ask you to seek a common good beyond your comfort; to defend needed reforms against easy attacks; to serve your nation, beginning with your neighbor. I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens, building communities of service and a nation of character.
