Brad Paisley has a message for the Class of 2020, who won’t be able to celebrate their graduations in person this year due to the coronavirus pandemic:
(Brad Paisley) “You should of had the opportunity to walk across that stage and throw that cap in the air. You take the pictures in your backyard with your entire family from all over America flying in to see you graduate in this accomplishment in this time in your life that’s so full of promise. Well, the fact that you’ve been robbed of this moment doesn’t change anything about your potential and your future. If anything, it should give you some sort of inspiration in terms of what you want to do going forward.”
Brad Paisley has issued a challenge to the class of 2020 graduates:
(Brad Paisley) “I challenge the class of 2020 to take all of this frustration and turn it into something good. Become doctors, scientists, nurses, first responders, leaders…People who do a better job than we have done with this. You can change the world and that doesn’t just change because you didn’t get to walk across that stage and shake hands with your principal or throw that cap in the air. You are the future of this country, and we’re hoping that you will rise up and make it an even better place.”
