The high school valedictorian was required to give a speech. He began by reading from his prepared text. “I want to talk about my mother and the wonderful influence she has had on my life,” he told the audience. “She is a shining example of parenthood, and I love her more than words could ever do justice.” At this point he seemed to struggle for words. After a pause he looked up with a sly grin and said, “It’s really hard to read my mom’s handwriting.” (Cybersalt.org)
