Hey folks! For those of you who are curious, I've posted the speech that I gave at graduation this past Friday. It was a huge honor to be chosen by my classmates.  I've also included the text here.

Your Mom had emailed me your graduation video, which I haven't had a chance to view yet since I've just returned from my second trip to Taiwan in 4 months. (Love that place!)

I've just read your speech - both powerful and inspiring. Congratulations! And in my search for a new doctor, I will ask him/her to define and differentiate between "kindness" and "kind" and select the one who knows the difference.

Good luck in the new phase of your life.

Hi, Jess,
As you know, I sent the link of your speech to some of my friends. They all said great things about you. Some said your speech brought tears to their eyes. One of my friend Karen wrote a really nice e-mail to me. I would like to share with you. She wrote:

Dear Wendy,
Thank you so much for including me with those to whom you sent this link. I certainly listened and I am awed by your daughter's poised and gracious spirit. Here's the note i posted on my facebook page:

When you have the time, listen to the speech that begins at 17:45. Dr. Jessica Guh, medical school graduate, is delivering a speech at commencement. I once worked with her Mom and I met her daughter years ago when she came home to work for the summer. If this young woman is an example of our next generation, those of us in mid-life just may be in safe hands as time goes by! Watch, listen and learn. Oh, by the way - the topic is "Being Kind". -- Enjoy!
