Just had a chance to read it (not watch), and I don't disagree with the message at all. The ultimate conclusion wasn't " youre not special", it was a means ro get to the point of "do something meaningful with your life.". Take advantage of your opportunities You have and do things for the joy they will bring to others, not simply to cross it off a list.
jmo - extremely poignant address.
Edit - it's also germane to point out that this was David McCullough JUNIOR - the son of the historian....not the man himself.
