  • ABC’s David Muir tells Northeastern grads to face fears head-on

    Boston Globe - 05/08/2015

    On Marathon Monday in 2013, Northeastern University student Shores Salter ran toward the bombings and “made the choice to go forward when others went back,” president Joseph E. Aoun told a crowd of about 20,000 graduates, faculty, and guests at the school’s commencement ceremony Friday.

    Salter, among those receiving a degree, found a woman whose right leg had been badly injured. He removed his belt and stanched the bleeding.

    Confront fear and embrace it. This was the message that echoed throughout Northeastern’s graduation at TD Garden, as the university conferred 3,780 degrees.

    Commencement speaker David Muir, the anchor of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” urged graduates not to ignore the fear of what comes next.
