I don’t know where I would be without it. One of the main gifts is the possibility of using our voice. I have been thinking a lot about some of the distressing problems that we face collectively, and I think that sometimes we feel, or make us feel, that we defend different causes.

I have been selfish. I have been cruel at times, difficult to work and ungrateful, but many of you in this room have given me a second chance and I think it is when we are at our best, when we support each other, not when we cancel each other out of past mistakes … when we help each other grow, when we educate ourselves, when we are guided towards redemption. That is the best of humanity.
