Ellen DeGeneres’s Tulane Graduation Speech

This will go down as one of history’s greatest commencement speeches and reaffirms why Ellen DeGeneres is so awesome. At Tulane University over the weekend, DeGeneres talks about her girlfriend who was killed in a car accident when she was 19, her stand-up comedy path, coming out as a lesbian, the fleeting notion of success and living one’s life with integrity.

Also?  It’s a reminder just how gifted she was as a stand-up comic.

Well, the speech is great and there’s dancing at the end.  There’s no dancing on the video above, but if you check this one, and get to the end, you’ll see the dancing.
