We are from different worlds, yet we somehow fit together.
Love is what binds us, through fair or stormy weather.
I stand before you now with only one agenda, to let you know my heart is yours.
We talk a lot about tradition this time of year.
But as much as we love our traditions, sometimes our best memories come from the times that are the most untraditional.
We remember the year mom and dad went crazy.
We remember the year Santa punched out the caroler.
But for me, this was the year that the word tradition got a lot bigger
Your kids don’t need to know who you were before you had them.
They need to know who you wish you were and they need to try to live up to that person.
They are gonna fall short, but the better they fall short of the fake you than the real you
A kiss can be a start of something new
It can be how we say, this the person I love
It can be romantic
It also be worth of waiting for
Humor makes difficult situations easier
You can’t have a successful marriage without being a good listener.
Sometimes it takes a little work, sometimes it takes a lot of work
And sometimes it’s just excruciating
It’s ironic that I stand up here representing my classmates
They should be up there themselves
Everybody’s got their stuff, whether you are popular, or a drama geek, or a cheerleader, or even a nerd like me. We all have our insecurities.
There are dreamers and there are realists in this world.
You think the dreamers would find the dreamers, and the realists would find the realists.
But more often than not, the opposite is true.
You see the dreamers need realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun.
And the realists without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.
In the end,
We will remember
Not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
–Martin Luther King, Jr.
From tomorrow on,
Write to each of my dear ones,
Telling them of my happiness what the lightening of happiness has told me.
I will spread it to each of them.
