Maria Shriver's Amazing Commencement Speech

Posted: Updated:

I wanted to share a wonderful speech by my friend Maria Shriver from her daughter's graduation from my alma mater, USC. There is wonderful wisdom in her words. She is right that all too often in our own lives we are not living in the moment, always for something tomorrow, next week or next year. So in Maria's words, I hope you will "pause" to watch her great commencement address.
