Oh how I would love to hear more graduation speaches like this. There is truly no other purpose for mankind than to know where they will spend eternity.
Great story, if only. Even if it was given in a Christian school setting. It sets the heart to dreaming. The characters opening list of truths about himself would set any group of young people on the edge of their seats. It started slow, no 'hook' but then it took off for the stars.

I am glad he told the whole story. Unfortunately, most high school and college speeches are censored as to content.
Hope it was true, more speeches need to be real.

Congratulations on your 2nd place entry. I think there were a lot of strong competitors in the beginner category this last week.

Congratulations with winning 2nd place with this timely piece for graduation. Loved the courage of the MC for improvising at the last minute. God was certainly at work in his heart--and a young boy's life was changed--that's how God works--and it is good!
