Supreme Court Justice John Roberts' best advice for young people takes 'exactly 10 minutes a week'
"Once a week, you should write a note to someone," Roberts told graduating ninth graders. "Not an email. A note on a piece of paper. It will take you exactly 10 minutes," he continued.Roberts - whose son attends the school - then dictated to students how to write such a note:
Roberts, who had already told students to view themselves as equals to all of the people they meet, said that writing a letter of thanks will have impact on both their lives and on the lives of those who receive a note."It will mean a great deal to people who, for reasons most of us cannot contemplate, have dedicated themselves to teaching middle school boys," he said. These people "will feel a little more special because you did, and they will think you are very special because of what you did. No one else is going to carry that dividend during your time at school."
