Some Things Matter Some Things Don't
Commencement Address delivered at Graduation
In educational circles this day is called commencement. Commencement means a beginning. The end of schooling means the beginning of something else, the commencement of other things. Sometimes there is a breakdown in communications at services such as this. The speaker is of one generation - the graduates of another. They are celebrating the end and the speaker wants to talk about a beginning.
