Commencement address of the year thus far given by English teacher, David McCullough Jr. at Wellesley High.
None of you is special
If everyone gets a trophy, trophies become meaningless
My, that was some damn fine smack.
We do, however, recall the closing lines from the address of our own high school proceedings, oh so many years ago and it went something like this:
Take your friendships seriously
Take your future studies seriously
Take your career seriously
Take the relationships with your family seriously
Take your recreational passions seriously
Take your marriage seriously
... but don't take life too seriously
Or words to that effect.
