Graduation Speech

Extracts from this document...


Graduation Speech In some Hindu communities, there is a rite of passage called the bizarre wedding...This is when a sick child or adult marries... a dog. Would you want to be stuck with a dog as your spouse for the rest of your life? I think not... The person is believed to transfer his or her illness and bad luck to the dog and so treat it like a normal bride or groom. There have even been some instances when the person and the dog sleep in the same bed... well...thank God we are not living in that community!!! So spare a moment to think about the poor children who are married to a dog and think of how lucky we are - educated, cultured and moving forward in the right direction ---- moving to high school. We are no longer kids as we confidently move forward to face World challenges and achieve higher goals. ...read more.

Here we all are, having accomplished the various wonders of middle school. So spare a moment thinking about all your glories and achievements in the last few years. Fun and carefree days, hard work and exam days ...or boring days. Each day in school has helped us develop our personality, character and hopefully guided us up the right path. Let's hope our tracks remain straight and no detours or falls change our direction from becoming smart, well groomed, knowledgeable and educated adults of the 21st century. ?? ?? ?? ??
