George Saunders at Syracuse University

George Saunders in a fiction writer who has a deep, deep humanity. The link below is the commencement speech he gave at Syracuse University this past spring.  I'm not sure if Saunders in a Catholic, or even a Christian, but this short speech is worth the read.

My favorite line: "What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. 
Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering, and I responded…sensibly.  Reservedly.  Mildly."
