Michael Keaton leaves Kent State graduates with two very important words

State News

Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Keaton was in Ohio Sunday to deliver the commencement address at Kent State University.

The actor, who attended Kent State more than 30 years ago, gave advice to students about taking risks and not being afraid to make mistakes.

“I’m looking out at you, and your little brothers and little sisters, and those kids down in Parkland, Florida and I’m thinking to myself ‘they ain’t waiting for anybody.’ Don’t you wait for anyone. You are the world. You are the change,” said Keaton.

Keaton ended his speech with two very important words.

“I’ve got two words that I want you all to remember. They’re very important. And if I leave you with anything,” Keaton said. I’m going to leave you with these two words. And those two words are, ‘I’m Batman.”’

Keaton is known for playing Bruce Wayne and Batman in ‘Batman’ in 1989 and ‘Batman Returns’ in 1992.
