When I first got the word that Oprah Winfrey would be giving the commencement address at Johnson C. Smith University I thought how lucky the students are to have such successful person give them a lesson on what their lives could be. Commencement is the end of a long journey, but it is also the start of a new life. Ms. Winfrey let the students know that the road wasn’t always perfect for her. You will have those times that test you, but don’t give up because “JCSU, your future is so bright, it burns my eyes!”
