My father's father worked in the Chevy plant in Flint, Michigan. He was an assemblyline worker.He drove his two children here to Anna Arbor,and told them: That is where you're going to go to college.I know it sounds funny now.Both of his kids actually did graduate from Michigan.That was the American dream.

我的爷爷在密歇根州弗林特的雪弗兰汽车厂工作。他是装配线上的一名工人。他曾开车带两个孩子来到安娜堡。告诉他们:你们以后要上这所大学!我知道现在听起来很好笑。他的两个孩子也确实从密歇根大学毕业了。这就是美国梦。

His daughter, Beverly, is also with us today.My Grandpa used to carry an "Alley Oop" hammer,a heavy iron pipe with a big hunk of lead melted on the end.The workers made them during the sit-down strikes to protect themselves.When I was growing up, we used that hammer whenever we needed to pound a stake or something into the yard.It is wonderful that most people don't need to carry a heavy blunt object for protection anymore.But just in case, I brought it with me.My Dad became a professor at uh…Michigan State,and I was an incredibly lucky boy.A professor's life is pretty flexible,and he was able to spend oodles of time raising me.Could there be a better upbringing than university brat?

我姑姑贝弗利今天也来了。爷爷以前经常扛着一个大铁锤,铁管上铸着大铅坨的那种。那是用来在静坐罢工时,保护自己的武器。小时候,我们常用它在后院打桩子。现在世道好了,大家不需要铁锤保护自己了。但以防万一,我还是把它带来了。后来我的父亲成为了一名教授,密歇根州立大学的教授,我很走运,因为教授的工作比较灵活,有大量的时间陪我。还有比大学校园更适合培养孩子的地方吗?

What I'm trying to tell you is that this is way more than just a homecoming for me.It's not easy for me to express how proud I am to be here,with my Mom, my brother and my wife Lucy, and with all of you,at this amazing institution that is responsible for my very existence.I am thrilled for all of you,and I'm thrilled for your families and friends,as all of us join this great, big Michigan family I feel I've been a part of all of all my life.What I'm also trying to tell you is that I know exactly what it feels like to be sitting in your seat,listening to some old gasbag give a long-winded commencementspeech.Don't worry. I'll be brief.

我想告诉大家的是,来这里不仅仅是重回母校。我非常自豪能跟我的妈妈,哥哥,妻子露西,还有你们大家聚在这里。这里见证了我的成长。我的自豪难以言表。我为你们感到骄傲,也为你们的家人和朋友感到骄傲,因为我们都是密歇根大家庭的一员,它是我生命中不可或缺的一部分。同时,我也知道你们现在坐在台下的感受:听我们这些老家伙絮叨,老生常谈。别担心,我简单说几句。
