Today is a bright day full of hope and promise, and I’m humbled to stand here before all of you who are so full of promise and hope as you are about to move forward to meet the great challenges of life even though it must seem to you that just yesterday you were beginning kindergarten.

Today is an end, but it is not the end. It is just another beginning from which time you should always believe and trust in yourself, and not settle for easy answers, and question everything, because life is not a destination, but a journey into the future—your future. You are the future, so never settle for the dreams and goals of others and always be true to your own intuition. Dare to be all you can be.

Yes, dare to live your dreams and follow your own star because if you can dream it, you can do it, and one person’s star is not another person’s dream. With the support and encouragement of your parents and teachers, you’ve worked hard to arrive here at the first day of the rest of your lives, making lifelong friendships and storing up cherished memories along the way. But now, diploma in hand, it’s time to never stop learning as you follow your star and dreams and leave your comfort zone to think outside the box and make a difference in the world. It is truly the best time of your lives.

Don’t fear failure. Instead welcome failure and success alike. Embrace your successes, learn from your failures, and always trust your own instincts as you spend your waking hours taking chances once you take that first step today of a thousand mile journey through doors that close behind you and open in front of you.

Make it your intention to always pay it forward and be the change you wish to see on the road less traveled. And always be kind to that one stranded starfish you see along the beach of life’s ocean, that one starfish no one else takes the time to help. Pick that starfish up and throw it back, because you’ll make a difference to it.

In closing, today’s the day you begin to get out there and turn the world upside down and make it a better place as you embark upon the next phase of your lives. Go Bulldogs!

now monkey with help of Man make presentment of speech monkey invent for give to graduate so they not have to leak sweat into polyester too much and more soon lift fanny off uncomfortable folding chair & throw silly hat like frisbee & go to party with good advice from monkey.

The easiest part of your life is officially done. During the rest of it, do try to overcome your selfish interests, don’t make excuses for the stupid choices you’ll make, & please remember that the map is not the territory. Think about that. The map is not the territory.
