There is a time and place for everything

Call me conservative, or anything you want, but I feel that there is a time and place for everything.

And I strongly feel that expletives are not to be used during formal convocation ceremonies, no matter how emotionally charged you may be.

I also feel that the NTU school of Communications obviously chose the wrong person to be class valedictorian. Maybe I am a bit harsh and unforgiving.

The article and her apology.

It really makes me wonder what's become of our young people nowadays. No doubt she apologised, but I feel it should never have even been said in the first place. Why the need to use expletives? Are you so proud of those words? Or are you so vocabulary challenged that you couldnt find another word to express your feelings. It makes me wonder about your upbringing. It reflects on you!!
