Wise words for the New Year ( from a movie )

Review by James Maina


Well actually, this was a graduation speech. Or was is it a poem given the rhyming way it was written? I could find no better way to introduce 2016 other than through the wise words of Gwen Stacy’s graduation speech in Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)


Good Morning, as team faculty and families of my fellow graduates.

It’s an honor to be standing up here today.I know we all think that we are immortal, we are suppose to feel that way.We are graduating, but like our brief four years of high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever. What makes it precious is that it ends, we know that now more than ever, and I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck.So don’t waste it living some one else’s life, make yours count for something.Fight for what matters to you, no matter what, cause even if we fall short what better ways is there to live. Its easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today.but there will be dark day ahead of us too.There will be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most.No matter how bad it gets or how lost you feel you must promise me.That you will hold on to hope. Keep it alive.We have to be greater than what we suffered my wish for you is to become hope.People need that, and even if we fail, what better way is there to live.As we look around here today and all the people who help make us who we are I know it feelslike we are saying good bye but we will carry a piece of each other into everything thatwe do next.To remind us of who we are and who we are meant to be.I had a great four years with you, I will miss you all very much
