米特·罗姆尼在南弗吉尼亚大学毕业典礼上演讲

  Thank you so much. Thank you President Sybrowsky, and thank you also to Chairman Knight. What an inspirational and powerful leader. Well, leaders both of these men are, and I appreciate the support of their wives. Thank you also for our Congressman being here, Bob Goodlatte. I appreciate his service and his leadership at a critical time in our nation’s history. It’s an honor to be with so many distinguished guests here, parents and friends, and of course the graduating seniors here at SVU. To the class of [2013], congratulations on a job well done.

  Now, to the parents, the years of investment and prayers have added to this joyful achievement, and you are about to enjoy the new American dream. The new American dream is not owning your own home. The new American dream is getting the kids out of the home you own.

  Now quite a few years ago, at a ceremony not unlike this one, I and my fellow graduates followed a tradition of standing and singing one of our high school hymns. Its words were very impressed upon my mind. And they led me to dream, to imagine what my future would be like. And the words went like this:

“Forty years on, when afar and asunder,
Parted are those who are singing today,
 When we look back and forgetfully wonder
 What it was like in our work and our play,
 How will it seem to us, forty years on?”
