the missing students

june-- the time of graduation and celebrating-- but this commencement speech by aries hines of mills college reminds us that the choice of going to college and succeeding there is not a dream within everyone's grasp. this video and her speech are a reality check for me... i struggle to pay my school loans while doing public interest work, but never did i struggle to get into college or law school. i saw this on the applied research center's website: for the students who aren't supposed to graduate. listen to and read her powerful speech.
