Writing Our Own Speeches

June 10, 2011 at 8:29 am Leave a comment

Coming into this class I knew we would have to write speeches, with our own ideas, thoughts and beliefs. I never imagined that I would get to know my fellow classmates as intimately as I have. It amazes me how words just come so easily to some people, how they can just draw you in and make you feel like you are actually experiencing the situation. It is so inspiring to hear of the hardships some of my classmates have over come, and how they are bettering themselves instead of dwelling on the past and feeling sorry for themselves. Just thinking of their experiences gives me the strength to move past my own issues and to look at things from a stand point of “it could be worse”. It is just absolutely amazing to me. I would like to thank every one who shared a personal triumph, and I want to thank you for giving me hope that no matter what, no matter how difficult a situation may be it will get better at some point.
