An inspiring speech Miko Peled gave at his son’s high school graduation.

How to make a difference. One of the best and most challenging speeches I have heard.

I was honored that the school asked me to give the keynote speech. Not everyone liked it, some called it “Israel bashing,” others “liberal screed” “not appropriate for a graduation.” Others yet “Embarrassing and infuriating. ” But the person that matters the most, my son, approved as did many of the teachers parents and graduating seniors. So I’m quite pleased.  The speech starts at minute 33:35.
