Latin Commencement Speech/Lateinische Ansprache

I came across this Latin commencement speech at Harvard.  Enjoy!
Diese lateinische Abschlußrede bei der Harvard Universtät ist beeindruckend!

  1. Funny!! Hope your mouth isn't too sore. I don't envy you the unpacking and yes it is a shame that the excess rain could not have been shared elsewhere!

    1. I thought this was really well done. Even the pronunciation was good. We are still not quite unpacked and it looks like we will move again, too much stuff all over. My mouth is still sore on the side that needs the dentist's attention on Tuesday. I am only using the repaired side right now.

  2. Lustig, ich hatte mich noch nie geachtet dass "commencement" also Beginn auch Abschlussrede heisst.

    1. Ich habe noch nie über dieses Wort wirklich nachgedacht, weil es so oft benutzt wird, besonders wenn man bei einem College ist. Es muß darauf hinweisen, daß jetzt ein neuer Lebensabschnitt beginnt. Der Abschluß ist also ein Anfang.

  3. Oh Eva! Sympathies are with you! That does not sound fun. Plus, you still have a lot of returning to life back home now too! Take care and blessings on you!
    Love,

    1. I am trying to not use my bad tooth right now. Soft food also helps. It should all improve on Tuesday I hope.
