As graduation season winds down, we draw inspiration from two speeches delivered at area commencement ceremonies this month.

Jake Tapper, anchor of CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" and CNN's chief Washington correspondent, reminded graduates at UMass Amherst that it's OK if it takes them a while to figure out what they want to do in life.

And at Babson College, UNICEF CEO Caryl Stern emphasized the unique position the graduates are in to make change in the world.
