Twelve years after famously dropping out to build Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg went back and got an honorary degree at Harvard University, addressing the 2017 graduates with a speech about the power to change the world and the importance of having “a sense of purpose.”

“You are graduating into a world that needs purpose, and it’s up to you to create it,” Zuckerberg said, warning against cynicism. In his talk, he recognized numerous students who have already had significant personal achievements.

Zuckerberg ended by reciting part of a Jewish prayer for healing that he says he sings to his baby daughter.

Two days ago, he visited his old dorm room.
