I'm not really sure why it took me so long to post this, but I gave this speech at my high school graduation this past June, and I thought it was worth sharing. Other than some minor changes for publication, this is the speech as delivered.
Well, we made it. We’ve been through a lot in our four years here in high school. We’ve had a lot of fun, a lot of accomplishments, and a lot of memories. And while it might seem like a great time to take a breath of relief and relax for a while, we’re not done yet. In fact, we’re not even remotely close to being done.
