Castle Season 4 – Alexis’s Graduation Speech

with 4 comments

Just when you want to believe that few things never end & things (people) stay with you forever…you end up coming across something like this..a piece of literature, a movie or a conversation. And you end up in a vicious circle of thoughts.

Pasted below is a Castle Season 4 Finale Quote. This was a piece delivered by Alexis (Castle’s Daughter) during her graduation speech.


“There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not, everything eventually ends. As much as I’ve looked forward to this day, I’ve always disliked endings. Last day of summer, the final chapter of a great book, parting ways with a close friend. But endings are inevitable, Leaves fall, you close the book. You say goodbye. Today is one of those days for us. Today we say goodbye to everything that was familiar, everything that was comfortable. We’re moving on. But just because we’re leaving, and that hurts, there’s some people who are so much a part of us, they’ll be with us no matter what. They are our solid ground. Our North Star. And the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us … always.”

I wonder, if the “Today” that she is talking about comes everyday. Isn’t it?

    • Yes, Michael I am aware of the “Today” she is referring to. My thoughts were more on the lines of this ‘Today’ being a part of our lives in different forms.
