6. Damn, that was brave.

The times they are a-changin' and it is a beautiful thing. The reaction of the students is priceless.

7. Students quickly change

Listen to the audience before and after. Students quickly change from boredom to enthusiasm upon hearing his statement

8. It was brave

Our school handled the valedictorian in an unusual way, the top 10 students if they wanted to speak, submitted a speech. I submitted a speech that was intended to be a dummy speech in that I was going to do a "I fooled you all I'm gay" speech but my dummy speech wasn't taken. I have to say that it was probably a good thing because I was angry where he was gracious.
