H17417 Col The Hon J.R. Matheson KStJ, CD delivered the Royal Military College of Canada convocation address in May 1993.
Many of the people who were in attendance considered it one of the most memorable and inspiring speeches that they had ever heard; spoken by a man supported by not one but two canes.
With the recent passing of John Matheson we feel it is fitting to reprint his entire 1993 speech. A WARNING: Those reading the article may not be able to do so with dry eyes.
