Janet Dahl wrote a really wonderful speech for her youngest son Matt's Senior Salute event (he's graduating from a suburban high school which, despite being obvious to figure out from context, I'll follow the Dahls' lead and decline to name explicitly.)

Adolescence is a pretty difficult time in most people's lives, but that seems entirely appropriate from Janet's perspective: "I guess if the earth did not apply pressure and heat to carbon, there would be no diamonds."
