Sheryl Sandberg spoke to Virginia Tech's graduating class of 2017 today, encouraging them to nurture a solid community of friends and family for post-college life.
Pointing to the graduates' "shared losses", she said in prepared remarks, "You know that life can turn in an instant".
Sandberg also shared some of what she's learned as the founder of Leanin.org - specifically, how groups coming together with the same goals can build collective resilience and how nurturing what she calls "grounded hope" can lead to achieving even the most hard goals. "It's in our relationships with each other that we find our will to live, our capacity to love, and the power to make lasting change in the world".
Sandberg, who lost her husband Dave Goldberg to a heart condition in 2015, spoke to the students about how surviving tragedy can bring strength. And we build it together, as a community.
"We all need our posses, especially when life puts the obstacles in our path", the Facebook COO said. I woke up on what I thought would be a normal day. I had never felt weaker.
"The most important thing I learned is that resilience is not something we have or we don't", she said.
The Lean In author, whose advice to women workers on advancing their careers and battling sexism launched a worldwide movement of women's "circles," revealed that she stopped to visit the university's monument to the 32 students and professors killed on campus in one of America's worst-ever mass shootings. "And you don't have to be someone's best friend from the first grade to show up", she said. Then I usually wouldn't bring it up again because I didn't want to remind them of their pain. But like I had done with others, people often avoided the topic with me.
"You don't have to do something huge".
"We are not born with a certain amount of resilience", Sandberg told students. "And you know what it means to come together, to pull together, to grieve together, and most importantly, to overcome together", she said. Hope like that makes all of us more hopeful. Support is coming together in a group to build hope, and through that resilience.
