Bill Clinton spoke at UF today. It was so incredible to see him in person. I had goosebumps half the time. He spoke mostly on globalization and why we, as a species, should strive to become what he calls an integrated community, rather than just interdependent nations, as the latter doesn’t put enough emphasis on the fact that we are all equal. I don’t know what to say. It was just great. It was Bill-freaking-Clinton!
Unfortunately, I don’t have much to show from the appearance. In the Alligator, our school newspaper, it said that no cameras, video cameras, or bookbags would be allowed in. So, given this, I didn’t bring my digital camera, but as we were standing in line we noticed huge signs that said, no cameras, video cameras, or bookbags. Needless to say, I was (am) pretty freaking pissed. I did happen to get a couple of pictures with the camera on my phone, but they look like SHIT, as was expected. You can view them here and here; I promise that it really is Bill at the podium. 🙂
