Honestly, I don't remember much from my high school graduation. I graduated from Homer-Center High School in 2004 and the only thing I remember is hearing our commencement speaker Rep. Dave Reed (the current Majority Leader of the House of Representatives) begin his speech stating "You won't remember much from my speech tonight..." and then everything fades to black. I wish I was kidding.

I guess that's why I was so moved by the two student speakers at Freeport's graduation. Each speaker put some thought into each speech: the first speaker had everyone rolling with laughter as he reminisced with his classmates, while the second speaker had the entire audience stop and take a moment to be in the moment--something I definitely did not do.
