From Judge Mathis' speech at Penn State Law school on April 16, 2013: You have a commitment and an obligation to empower people--first yourself, then your community, your nation. When you graduate, there will be no red carpet. There will be a lot of doors. They will be closed, with a DO NOT ENTER sign on them. You look for one that might be cracked open. You choose one, and if they don't let you in, then kick it down.
