Sheesh, what a killjoy!! I like his message, but considering H.S. graduation only happens once in your lifetime it would've been nice if he could deliver that message in an upbeat manner. Granted, sometimes the best way to get through to someone is with a harsh wake-up call. Hopefully the graduating class took heed in his words and didn't just tune him out when they realized he wasn't coddling or congratulating them...

I think its good that people give the kids a little bit of ranting as a wake up call.
But maybe HS graduation is too lte as they have already decided on going to college etc.
