Commencement Speech Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. Ryunosuke Satoro, Japanese Poet That quote resonates with me deeply when I reflect on the great friendships, excellent teachers, parents and families all galvanized in their commitment to our, the graduating classes', success. Thank you parents, family members, teachers, administrators and fellow students this has been a wonderful journey, all made possible because of your unwavering, unfailing support. Our graduating class applauds each of you for sharing in our accomplishments, making them possible. (You might want to stop and applaud them encouraging your graduating class to do the same this will be very classy to do and set the stage for a great speech). When the Japanese poet Ryunosuke Satoro says Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean I think about our families' and our very large extended family our school. Individually we are drops in the vast, very powerful and very beautiful ocean that resonates with life and teems with opportunity. Like any ocean there has been rough weather, storms, turbulence yet by being galvanized together as one family, we have reached our destination, which is graduation day. We've arrived. And like any significant accomplishment, none of us could have done this alone. From the parents who made sure we arrived in time for classes to our great faculty who have a passion not just for teaching, but constantly learning too, thank you. Thanks
