“A TON OF MEANING TO EXPRESS”ByFrancis Austin S. Diaz
100..99..98..97..96..95..94..93..92..91..90.. and so on and so forth This was how we did our countdowns for Christmas and New Year.Now, timers should then be reset; we are beginning the countdown again,but, this time, it’s not for Christmas nor for New Year but for the mostawaited, most prestigious, and most emotional day of our high school life,graduation.With only a few months left before that day, here we are, giving ourlast sentiments and perhaps our parting words to each other in the form of this speech. Here it is that lies the partial story of IV-Galileo Batch 2010-2011. It is in here that lies the feelings and emotions of each one of ustowards each other. Here we will hear words we could not even have hadimagined another saying.Last January 10, 2011, during our Physics class, Mr. Sena asked us tobring 7 yellow stars, 5 red stars, 3 blue stars and a special star. The sevenyellow stars are meant to be given to seven people whom you owe anapology. The five red stars for those people whom you should thank. Thethree blue stars for those people whom you should utter the words “I loveyou” to. And the last star, the most special star is for the person who is/wasvery special to you in each and every way imaginable.Sorry. Thank you. I love you.
