Tom Hanks congratulated the class of 2020 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio with an empowering speech. "You started in the olden times, in a world back before the Great Pandemic of 2020,” he said. “You will talk of those earlier years in your lives in just that way. The future is always uncertain. But we who celebrate what you have done, who celebrate all of your achievements, we are certain of one thing on this day: You will not let us down."
