Class of 2009!I don't think I heard you.Class of 2009!First I want you to stand up and wave and cheer your supportive family and friends!I am sure you can find them out there.Show your love!It is a great honor for me to be here today。

09届的同学们!来点激情给我个回应。各位同学,我希望大家站起来向支持你们的亲朋好友挥手致意。你们一定能在人群中找到他们,借此机会表达你们的爱吧!能站在这里我感到非常荣幸。

Now wait a second.I know:that's such a cliche.You're thinking: every graduation speaker says that - It's a great honor.But, in my case, it really is so deeply true being here is more special and more personal for me than most of you know. I'd like to tell you why.A long time ago,in this cold September of 1962,there was a Steven's co-op at this very university.That co-op had a kitchen with a ceiling that had been cleaned by student volunteers probably every decade or so。

等等,大家可能觉得有点矫情。“我很荣幸”这句话都说烂了。但真的是大实话,大家不知道:我对密歇根大学有特殊的感情。很久以前,1962年9月,天很冷,在密歇根大学里有一家餐厅,学生志愿者负责打扫厨房的天花板,大约十年才会打扫一次。

Picture a college girl named Gloria,climbing up high on a ladder,struggling to clean that filthy ceiling.Standing on the floor, a young boarder named Carl was admiring the view.And that's how they met.They were my parents,so I suppose you could say I'm a direct result of that kitchen chemistry experiment, right here at Michigan.My Mom is here with us today,and we should probably go find the spot and put a plaqueup on the ceiling that says: "Thanks Mom and Dad!"

想象一下:有个叫格洛丽亚的女学生,爬上了高高的梯子,努力地打扫脏兮兮的天花板。而一个叫卡尔的寄宿生在下面偷窥,这是他俩的初次邂逅,他们就是我父母。所以说,我是地地道道从密歇根大学厨房里造出来的,我母亲今天也来了。我想找到当年那个厨房,在天花板挂个匾上刻"感谢父母"!

Everyone in my family went here to Michigan:my brother, my Mom ,my Dad -- all of us.My Dad actually got the quantity discount:He got all three and a half of his degrees here.His Ph.D. was in Communication Science because they thought Computers were just a passing fad when he earned it 44 years ago.He and Mom made a big sacrifice for that degree.They argued at times over pennies, while raising my newborn brother.Mom typed my Dad's dissertation by hand,kind of ironic of those computer science dissertation。

我的家人都毕业于密歇根大学:我哥、我父母、还有我。我爸在文凭数量上更胜一筹:他在这获得了三个半学位,其中一个是通信工程的博士。44年前,他们认为计算机火不了多久。为取得这个学位,爸妈做出了很大的牺牲。为了抚养刚出生的哥哥,省吃俭用。堂堂计算机博士,论文是我妈逐字敲出来的,讽刺吧?

This velvet hood I'm wearing, this was my Dad's.This diploma, yeah,this diploma I have here that just like the one you are about to get this is my Dad's.And my underwear, oh never mind, sorry.

我身上这套博士服是我爸的,还有这张毕业证,跟你们即将拿到手的一样,也是我爸的。还有我的内裤,呃……算了。
