Delivered by Distinguished Speaker Jim Shelton, Assistant Deputy Secretary at the US Dept. of Education. The U.S. and the world are facing increasingly complex issues and challenges, both of man and nature, that seem to be beyond the imaginations and even well-intentioned efforts of this and the last generation. This seems to be a part of the human condition, which is why Robert F. Kennedy gave timeless advice, “…rely on youth…not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease…” The question is how can we unlock the latent human potential that exists in this and every country and use it to overcome some of our grandest challenges.
