Principal Peskin, our families, my fellow graduates, I stand here before you aware of the similarities that we share. I know that you’re feeling, outside of my incredible stage-fright, the same things that I’m feeling: pride and accomplishment, closure and regret, and a hopeful outlook on the future. But I don’t think you need me to elaborate on those feelings; instead I wanted to share something personal and tell you that there are people in my life who are gone now, people I miss very much and people who I am haunted by in different ways. But whether we’re separated by death or merely distance I know that they’re still with me because I keep them in my heart.
The truth is that in time, that’s all that we’re going to be to each other anyway, a population of memories. Some wonderful and endearing, some less so, but taken together those memories help make us who we are and who we will be. So whether you’re here with each other now, or merely in each other’s thoughts, remember each other on that road ahead and I hope that no matter where your travels lead you in this life, you’ll always take Capeside with you. Congratulations.
- Joey, 4x22, Dawson’s Creek
