Good morning students, school board members,
superintendent and district staff.
First, I would like to thank all of you, from teachers to
friends and family, for being in attendance this morning. You
have all had a profound impact on the development of the
students that will be graduating today, and I feel it is safe to say
that I speak on behalf of the whole graduating Class of 2015, in
thanking you for all of your efforts that you have invested in us
to this day.
When I first sat down to write this speech, tons of thoughts
were flowing through my mind. Am I going to reminisce about
memories of great importance to me? How about speaking of
significant events for the entire school? What is the message I
should try to convey? Will I pass out or just be at a loss for
words, because to be honest, I did not think I had it in me to do
this. But the most important goal I strove for was to create a
speech that was truly different. Not that bored people to sleep or
followed the traditional “your journey ends here, but a new one
begins” format, but instead offered excitement and new insight
into this monumental day. However, it is more so about your
accomplishments and the best way for me to craft inspiration
and motivation in you all.
Today is no small feat. It perhaps is the most significant
and life altering achievement most of you can claim to this day.
Never hesitate to recognize how proud each and every person
here today is for you to complete such a long and difficult task.
Having worked for over thirteen years just for this moment, it is
hard to ignore the determination, perseverance, patience, hardwork
and even sacrifice that embodies itself the attitudes of
every graduate. The innumerable amount of opportunities your
diploma enables you to attain is without doubt, and I encourage
all of you to pursue what is most dear to you. Pursue that in
which you feel you can make a difference.
Looking at you, the Class of 2015, I realize that after today,
I may no longer see many of you. That is a painful thought. On
the other hand, I am also filled with anticipation, because I have
no doubt in my mind that every single one of you sitting before
me has the potential to succeed and make a difference in life. Of
course, not every one of us can be rich, famous, and powerful,
but often times it is the people who just offer words of advice
and encouragement that make the world a better place. It is
human nature to reflect the mood of others in your own actions,
so positive words and actions could have an overwhelming
impact on the moods and quality of life of others. The
future looks bright.
Throughout my years in high school, not only have I gained
knowledge of the subjects I have studied, but I have learned
many other lessons as well. At times I know some of you
questioned the need to attend class, but gaining intelligence is
not the only purpose of it. School has helped to build priceless
social skills, as well as, instilled a value to succeed. I don’t
know about you, but when I see others performing well, I take it
as a challenge to try my best as well. Having the correct mindset
makes all of the difference. If you believe you can achieve
anything, and don’t allow others to tell you differently, what you
are capable of achieving is genuinely amazing.
I would like to conclude my speech with a quote from
Robert Frost. “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the
road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” I
encourage you, the Class of 2015, to not only follow the
opportunities available to you, but to follow your heart and
pursue a cause of particular importance to you. Instead of
following the path of past generations and graduating classes, I
challenge you all to make your own path. The risks are always
present, but the battle always makes the win so much sweeter.
For me, it is neither about the money nor the notoriety of a
position, but instead whether I can make a difference and love
what I do.
Thanks again to all the families, friends, teachers, and any
others I have missed, for your contributions. They are greatly
Congratulations again, Class of 2010, and I wish you all the
best of luck. I know you’ll do your best. I’ll miss you all.

It is the time of the Crusades during the Middle Ages - the world shaping 200-year collision between Europe and the East. A blacksmith named Balian has lost his family and nearly his faith. The religious wars raging in the far-off Holy Land seem remote to him, yet he is pulled into that immense drama. Amid the pageantry and intrigues of medieval Jerusalem he falls in love, grows into a leader, and ultimately uses all his courage and skill to defend the city against staggering odds. Destiny comes seeking Balian in the form of a great knight, Godfrey of Ibelin, a Crusader briefly home to France from fighting in the East. Revealing himself as Balian's father, Godfrey shows him the true meaning of knighthood and takes him on a journey across continents to the fabled Holy City. In Jerusalem at that moment--between the Second and Third Crusades--a fragile peace prevails, through the efforts of its enlightened Christian king, Baldwin IV, aided by his advisor Tiberias, and the military restraint of the legendary Muslim leader Saladin. But Baldwin's days are numbered, and strains of fanaticism, greed, and jealousy among the Crusaders threaten to shatter the truce. King Baldwin's vision of peace--a kingdom of heaven--is shared by a handful of knights, including Godfrey of Ibelin, who swear to uphold it with their lives and honor. As Godfrey passes his sword to his son, he also passes on that sacred oath: to protect the helpless, safeguard the peace, and work toward harmony between religions and cultures, so that a kingdom of heaven can flourish on earth. Balian takes the sword and steps into history.
- Written by Sujit R. Varma
In 1184, French village blacksmith Balian just lost his wife trough suicide grief-stricken by their child's death; the crusader lord Godfrey, baron of Ibelin, reveals himself as Balian's father and offers him a crusader life, which the youngster spontaneously rejects but after the local priest taunts him till his sword strikes fatally accepts, fleeing the French bishop's bloody justice and seeking divine forgiveness as promised to crusaders in Jerusalem. On the way, Balian is instructed the skills of war and chivalric honor code and dubbed a knight in Messina by his father, who was fatally wounded fighting off the bishop's men. After shipwreck on the Levantine coast, Balian soon proves himself a superior knight as fighter and noble idealist in the loyal service of leper king Baldwin, whose pragmatic right hand, the count of Tiberias, fails to convince Balian the ruthless knight Reynald de Chatillon and his traitorous master, candidate-heir to the throne Guy de Lusignan, must be stopped by all means before they plunge the crusader kingdom in a fatal war against the noble, militarily far superior Saracen king Saladin. When Tiberias is proven right, he leaves for Cyprus, brave Balian stays to defend besieged Jerusalem against impossible odds.
