Vice-president Mike Pence is one of the most gracious and thoughtful political leaders on the national stage. But several college graduates rudely turned their backs on Pence as he got up to deliver the keynote address at the Notre Dame commencement ceremony. He was also protested at Grove City College. So what's going on? We used to be able to sit down and listen to people we disagreed with. This is called tolerance. And respect. Of all the places that teach respect and tolerance to others with different ideas, it should be at the university. And of all the people to show respect to, it should be to our vice-president. Failure to do so, shows ignorance and immaturity which should lead us to wonder if these graduates have truly been prepared to enter the world.
