Class of 2009!

2009届的同学们,

I don't think I hurt you.

我不认为这伤害了你们。

First I’d like you to stand up, and wave and cheeryour supportive family and friends!

首先我希望大家都站起来,向支持你们的亲朋好友挥手致意!

I’m sure you can find them out there.

我相信你们都能在人群中找到他们。

Show your love!

把你们的爱表现出来吧!

It is a great honor for me to be here today.

今天来到这里我很荣幸。

Now wait a second.

请稍等一下。

I know: that’s such a cliche.

我知道,对于刚才那句陈词滥调,

You’re thinking: every graduation speaker says that — It’s a great honor.

大家可能会想:每一位毕业典礼的演讲者都会说——很荣幸。

But, in my case, it really is so deeply true--being here is more special and more personal for methan most of you know.

但就我而言,的确字真意深——我来到这里发言有着你们诸位并不知道的更特殊、更个人的意义。

I’d like to tell you why.

我愿意告诉你们这背后的故事。

A long time ago, in the cold September of 1962,

很久以前,1962年的寒冷9月,

there was a Steven’s co-op at this very university.

这座校园里有一家史蒂文消费合作社。

That co-op had a kitchen with a ceiling that had been cleaned by student volunteers probablyevery decade or so.

此合作社有一间厨房,那里的天花板由学生志愿者打扫,大概每十来年才一次吧。

Picture a college girl named Gloria, climbing up high on a ladder, struggling to clean that filthyceiling.

想象一下,画面上有位名叫格洛里亚的女大学生爬上了高高的梯子努力地打扫那脏兮兮的天花板。

Standing on the floor, a young boarder named Carl was admiring the view.

一位名叫卡尔的寄宿生站在地上,为该情景钦佩不已。

And that’s how they met.

这就是他俩的初次邂逅。

They were my parents,

他俩就是我的父母亲,

so I suppose you could say I’m a direct result of that kitchen chemistry experiment, right hereat Michigan.

所以我想你们会说,我就是这里——密歇根大学那个“厨房化学实验”的直接成果。

My Mom is here with us today,

我的母亲今天也来到了这里,

and we should probably go find the spot ,

也许我们应该去找到他们相遇之处,

and put plaque up on the ceiling that says:"Thanks Mom and Dad!"

并在天花板上镶嵌一块铭牌,刻上“谢谢爸爸、妈妈!"
