Tutu to young people - keep dreaming of a better world.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu spoke to a crowd of approximately 4,000 on Monday evening. Tutu was on campus as the 2010 Presidential Lecturer. Initially scheduled to speak in a smaller hall, the speech was moved to the largest venue on campus. It would not be an exageration to say that a pin drop would have sounded like a shot in the quiet of the room while Tutu spoke. The crowd made up of college students, young people and adults from all over the region, listened intently as the Archbishop spoke for forty five minutes.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu urged reporters to find good things to report on young people
At a press conference preceding a speech at MSU, Bishop Desmond Tutu chided reporters for their reporting on young people. The press focuses on the negative too much.
"It is not such a wonder how many young people go off the rails - but how many do not."
