Speech- Marissa Kibbee I could sit here for hours and just reminisce, and remorse. Last year, when I was in 7th grade, one of my closest friends had died from cancer. Her name was Samantha Rotmen. I remember the night I found out she had past away, I felt so alone, and so helpless. I didn’t want to believe it, but I knew I had to in order to move on. I remember never wanting to leave my room or feel happy again. Without her here with me, it wouldn’t feel right. The next morning when my mom woke me up for school, I remember just wanting to stay in bed forever. But than Sammy came into mind. Her always trying to make people happy, trying to get their minds off of her slowly slipping away. I knew that if she were here she would want me to…show more content…
Next year, while walking into high school, I won’t have time for all my doubts. Next year I will be going to a new school filled with new teachers, new classmates, and maybe even a new me. That’s the scary part this all, you can imagine the perfect future and dream about it all you want. But you never know what’s actually going to happen. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing, maybe were all just over thinking it. Going from a small school with the same sixty kids everyday to going to a new, bigger school with three other schools in just one grade will feel a lot different to all of us. With all these students, there will be a lot of different paths we can take while were there at high school. That’s pretty scary too, a lot of my friends won’t end up doing the same things as me, and we may slowly grow apart. Its sad, but that will help us all grow and be able to rely on ourselves, it will benefit us in the long run. I hope to a good, strong path next year. It’s easy to say that everyone else will try to take a good path too, but in reality, that most likely wont happen. But what I’ve come to understand, is that I’m responsible for my choices and my choices only, and I’m okay with that.

Now I’m standing here, at graduation and it couldn’t be anymore real. As much as I’d like to think I’m growing up and did this all on my own I don’t think I would’ve ever survived without all my teachers and coaches who pushed me to do more at this school than I would’ve ever imagined doing. And for that, I can’t thank you enough. If you guys had let me stay in my comfort zone, and never challenged me, graduating middle school wouldn’t feel as important as it does to me right now. The people I want to thank the most are my parents and my grandparents, who have been there and supported me every step of the way. Without them I don’t think I would’ve ever even thought about leaving my comfort zone and I would have never found out what I was truly capable of doing. I can’t emphasize enough about how every little thing I’ve done here has made me who I am today. All of my classmates have had an affect on me too. And ass long as I’ve affected at least one person in a good way, I’m happy. I know we’ve been given 9 years to make friends, but sometimes your not given the chance, so for students I never got the chance to really get to know, I hope you know that I am
