My Speech

This is my first speech for my COM 111 class. I got an 87.7 on it, because I didn't do good with eye contact. At the bottom of this post you will find a link to my speech on youtube if you would like to see it.

For those of you with children know that these wise words of wisdom from Jean are quite true, “You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What!! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again.”

Hello everyone, my name is Elizabeth Jones. I was born 38 years ago in Columbus Ohio and yes that makes me a buckeye. Go Buckeyes!!! I attend Anne Arundel Community College and my academic major is in Human Services. Years ago I attended Meade Senior High School, which is in Fort Meade, Maryland.

Most of my adult life I have lived in Baltimore City with my awesome family, minus about 6 months me and my family lived in North Carolina, but our life wasn’t working out there so we returned home, back to good old Baltimore City. Now that I am older I would love to move back to North Carolina, hopefully in the near future.

I and my husband have been married for 21 years and we have four wonderful children. We started with two children and eleven years went by and me and my husband decided to have two more children, because we thought it would be easier to care for them since we were older, and guess what?? It is not any easier, it I actually harder to give them what they need, but we still manage and we love all our children the same. Our children’s ages are 19, 16, 5, and 2 and yes our children keep us very busy and they need a lot of love and care. They are always running, playing, working hard, and learning new things. They need our love, guidance, and support to grow and flourish to become responsible adults.

Our oldest son is 19 and he is going to College and working. He is a very intelligent young man. I am very proud of him and the man he has become. It took a lot of running and playing for him to make it to where he is at today.

Our oldest daughter is 16 and she is working very hard to get into the Naval Academy when she graduates High School. She is an honor roll student and a very strong leader. I am very proud of her. All that running and playing she is doing is really going to work out for her in her adult life.

Our 5 year old daughter is very amazing and she loves to learn. She spends hours playing, running, and learning. Our 2 year old son is a handful and he learns more and more every day through running and playing.

We were blessed with four very active and amazing children that I love with all my heart and soul. Children are truly beautiful inside and out and yes they do run, play, and learn for hours a day.

In closing I would like to say that the reason I chose the quote at the beginning of my speech is because my children are very busy big and little people and they keep us on our feet and if given the chance they would keep you on your feet too. Please try not to laugh too hard and if you must please don't make me aware of it. I gave it my best. I still have two more speeches to do after this one.
