Apple CEO Tim Cook, who isn’t known for many video recorded public appearances outside of Apple events, recently spoke at length about equality at an Auburn University event. At the event, Cook went on to accept Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences Lifetime Achievement award. The folks over at AllThingsD wrote about Cook’s appearance and noted that his discussion included his two inspirations which are Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. Cook said the following:
They sacrificed everything, including their lives, as champions of human rights and of human dignity. Their images inspire me. They serve as a reminder to me every day that regardless of the path that one chooses, there are fundamental commitments that should be a part of one’s journey.
The time is always right to do what’s right.
