I was fortunate enough to be a student in the communications department with Dr. Rick Rigsby at Texas A&M University. He was truly one of the most impactful people I have ever met.
This speech came across my Facebook today. This speech might have just changed me today. I have been down, down on luck, down on confidence and even down on motivation. But this speech , these words and enthusiasm from this man and his story has changed me today. Today I will stand. To whom this man is thank you for one of the best speeches I have heard in a very long time
Okay, full blown ADHD here, attention span of a gnat, but I hung on every word. This is a gifted speaker with a magnificent story. Wow.
This was at my Alma mater in Vallejo,CA. True story, his father was a cook at our school. The speech had everyone up off their seats applauding and really gave goosebumps to those graduating. It’s truly refreshing to hear a good speech again, especially with the crap we get these days. I’m proud to have persevered through this school, although one of my toughest accomplishments it’s fair and came out a better person.
A true motivating speech no matter what happens just stand stand with your will to move forward and make an impact… hat’s off to you sir
His speech, his tone in the words he expresses and shows us how life should be taken as a man. I am literally touched and inspired. ❤ So much love to everyone! May we never sour as people but bring out the sweetest in all and everyone.
WTF is wrong with the guy on the left .. what’s with the dead expression look… U r listening to the best speech of the millennium.. stupid grandpa..
This has to be the best speech I’ve ever listened to!! I will forever ask myself “how am I living “ from now on. Life is truly our best teacher so we should all pay attention to its lessons. Thank you sir for being such an inspiration xxxx

My father only received a 3rd grade education, but what he taught us about integrity, morals and life are the most valuable lessons I have. And they are the ones I teach my children. We are truly blessed
This is the best commencement speech I’ve ever heard. ❤️
I love this, I can relate coming from a 5th grade drop out father, from Mexico who refuses to give up on us and himself. Who did the process of becoming an American!…on his own. Met a beautiful woman, that Is my mother, and never gave up. He is now an owner of a trucking fleet and has gained the American Dream. But refuses to let us have an easy way out. He has taught us what humble is, before he realized it. He is my hero!. I love you Pa.
My mom, a farm girl from rural Mississippi, dropped out of school in the 9th grade. She worked in a steel mill and raised me without help from my dad or her family. She instilled in me the self-confidence to follow my dreams. She earned her high school diploma while I was in college. I have four college degrees and I know it is because of my mother’s love and encouragement that I was able to accomplish this. I miss my mom every day.
A lot of people who have the most common sense, have no formal education . And some of the most educated people I’ve run across have no common sense. At all. I know I’ll get Facebook blasted , but just my observation
This was such a powerful story that it spoke to me on every level and made me to sit down and see where I am at. A tremendous speech that hit me so many times because I could relate to everything he said. This is something that every high school graduate and every college graduate and every technical school graduate and every vocational school graduate and every graduate needs to hear again and again and again.
Can we just broadcast that in a loop, instead of Fox News or CNN? Can we just listen to that guy? Incredibly powerful speech by an incredibly powerful man…God bless you, Dr. Rigsby!
Sometimes, just sometimes, you stumble across something that hits you like a brick. This commencement speech is one of those things. I have watched this video three times this morning, and each time I say to myself, “this is what America is all about. This country allows a person to be the best that he or she can be. I personally, consider myself to be a good man, but, truth be told, I have lots of room for improvement. I do try, and sometimes succeed, but more often than not, come up short. With the recent events in Las Vegas, (my thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the 58 people that died and the over five hundred people that were wounded,) let this video show the world that this is what denotes what America stands for. Not some coward, (because someone that sits on the 32nd floor of a hotel and rains bullets down on innocent people is truly a coward), but America is what this video is all about. For every “coward” in this country there are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people that strive to be the best that they can be. It doesn’t matter if your skin is brown, black, white or purple. It doesn’t matter if you were born here or in another country. America is a place where people can strive to be the best that they can be. Please don’t let a “coward” define what America is all about, but embrace the American’s that truly make this country great by being the best that they can be. Don’t let this country be defined by the small percentage of “cowards” that undermine what this country stands for, but by the people that make this country great. Don’t let this country be showcased by the people that try to bring this country to its knees, but instead, embrace the people that do their very best to allow this country to thrive, like Dr Rick Rigsby, and the thousands of people that scratch and claw and crawl to be the best that they can be. That is what America is all about. I truly believe that this video should be viewed by every grade school, high school and college student in the nation. GOD BLESS AMERICA
Loved this very much I have been getting kicked alot lately while trying to be the person I know I should be. This video really touches home and reminds me I’m not wrong for pushing through . Thank you
Lord Grant me the wisdom of the third grade drop out
So glad I was able to see this man’s speech, I feel like I’ve hit Rock bottom after the sudden passing of my husband in November 2016. This video definitely got me back on my feet with my Faith and Love for God, my family and Life
What a great speech. My heart goes out to this GREAT MAN. If people aren’t inspired by his words, they weren’t listening, if you weren’t listening, I suggest you try again. My father was my inspiration, a simple Fruiterer, but he taught me that nothing of value is easily earned. 15 years ago my wife and I lost our son Trent, we were both devastated, I took to drinking to excess, feeling sorry for myself. One day my wife Betty looked at me and said, ” we still have a daughter you know”, that changed me immediately, I, in the midst of self sorrow, had forgotten about everyone else. Please listen to those who you Love, and those who Love you, and continue to improve your life, and the kives of those you meet every day.
I started watching this and after a couple statements, I knew I needed to take notes. I wrote two pages of notes, tears streaming the whole time. Not only for my children but for myself. So much wrapped into that speech.
Is it because my optemetrist dilated my both eyes that I am crying while watching his speech or simply because of how awesome and inspiring the words of wisdom he spreading!
I listened to every single word and I heard every single word… asking myself here in Ireland this morning “how am I living”? What a guy!
What an inspiration / nothing black, nothing white, nothing political, just simple words to live by. The advice of a very wise man & his wife, passed on to the children…..
