CORY BOOKER’S CONSPIRACY OF LOVE
Yale law school graduate and mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Cory Booker, is no stranger to adversity and challenge. Not only did he decided to take on one of the most notoriously poor and crime-ridden cities in his state, but he's also managed to forge a successful political career (and series) based on a rolling-up-your-sleeves-and-get-involved work ethic. The following is a commencement speech that Mayor Booker recently delivered at Bard College. It is probably one of the most relevant and powerful speeches we've heard in a long time! He breaks down what he dubs as The Conspiracy Of Love, a theory about how many unnamed and faceless heroes and forces have "conspired" to selflessly help us, about how our power to transform our exterior reality begins with radically transforming our internal reality. Please take the time to listen and apply this one. Amazing!
Oh, and Cory, if you happen to read this, get at us, we would love to do a profile piece on you brotha' because we believe, we believe!
