President Biden urged the University of Delaware students not to give up hope in America and to pursue a life of public service.
“We need you all to get involved in public life and in the life of this nation,” Biden told the school’s graduates in an inaugural address. “There is one message I hope you will take away from me today: This is no time to stand on the sidelines. It’s no exaggeration. I mean it from the bottom of my heart.”
Biden himself graduated from the school back in 1965, when he said tuition was only $300 a year. He has spoken at graduation ceremonies there throughout his political career, including 1978, 1987, 2004 and 2014.
Biden also reflected on the shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas.
“Let’s be clear, evil came into that elementary school classroom in Texas and into that grocery store in New York,” Biden said. “We can’t ban tragedy, I know, but we can make America safer.”
