In times of crisis, President Barack Obama has always been a steady voice of reason. During the tense and frightening times Americans find themselves in today, the voice of President Obama offers some much-needed comfort.

In an online commencement speech to all 2020 graduates, President Obama called on America’s youth to shape their world as they want to see it, encouraging them to use their voices for real change.

‘You don’t have to accept what was normal before. You don’t have to accept the world as it is. You can make it into the world that it should be, and could be. You can create a new normal, one that is fairer and gives everybody opportunities, treats everyone equally, and builds bridges between people instead of dividing them.’

Unlike the current president in the White House, Obama also praised the protesters who have demonstrated with a passion for justice and equality.

‘To see so many of you participating in peaceful protests, to see so many of you of every race and background, raise up your voices on behalf of justice for all, it’s been unbelievably inspiring.’

In one part of his message, President Obama could have been speaking directly to Trump, who should take the advice he’s being given by a real president. After praising social media for its ability to bring people together, he warned about its dangers, as well.

‘Social media can also be a tool to spread conflict, division, and falsehoods, to bully people, to promote hate. Too often, it shuts us off from each other instead of bringing us together, partly because it gives us the ability to select our own realities independent of facts or science or logic or common sense…the irony is, usually the people who are peddling the falsehoods on the internet or social media are doing so for their own purposes.’

Twitter proved how desperately everyone needed to hear those words today. Read some of their comments below:
