Wallace was very reluctant to give this speech because he wasn’t sure he was ready to talk in front of 400 graduates and what if what he had to say was ordinary not something that would stick with all these students the rest of their lives. Reading this speech through the first time the tone particularly stuck out to me, a direct yet casualness in the way he made his argument really made this go from ordinary to extraordinary. Starting off with water and ending with water tied the essay into one big loop with many messages within it but a central message central the main idea water.

The value of public speaking evolved during time until now which became a predominant activity worldwide. Public speaking was a course requirement to obtain my bachelor degree, at first I wasn’t quite fond of it as I have never practised speaking in front of an audience before.
