Aaron Sorkin Syracuse Commencement Speech: 'You Are A Citizen Of The World'

Posted: Updated:

Aaron Sorkin, screenwriter of the Social Network, used his particular blend of wit and principles to deliver a stirring commencement adress at Syracuse University on Sunday.

Sorkin, a graduate of the university in 1983, regaled students with stories from his own life-- when he failed a class in college and later his battles with cocaine addiction. Above all, he told graduates, "Don't ever forget you are a citizen of the world." Oh, and most hilariously, "You are a group of incredibly well-educated dumb people."
