Submitted by: Suicism 4 years ago

A little long-winded, but especially poignant around the 7:00 mark. Happy Graduation, Class of 2012.

Lazyme & 8bit - I was discussing the same thing with a few of my friends the other day, I don`t understand why there is so much celebration for a child doing what they are supposed to do, nothing above and beyond, but just doing something that is required by law and to get a job. They didn`t do it by choice and it is something that everyone else does...so why all the damn fuss!

My cousin Stephen graduated this year. At 12 he was smarter and more mature than anyone in my family. I expect amazing things from that one.

High school is a pretty basic thing to get done. ... I don`t see the point to all this ceremony, other than to make the kids feel special.

Americans make such a big deal about graduation. Leave!

This is as bad as the guy speaking at my nieces graduation yesterday. I kept falling asleep.

What most media have missed in this speech is the the gist of the speech was: "You`re not special....YET. It`s up to you to become so."

There`s nothing in that description that makes me want to watch this video.
