t4ng* (1092951) writes "Several news sources are reporting about a Wellesley High English teacher David McCullough Jr. that told graduates "You are not special. You are not exceptional."

Quoting empirical evidence he said, "Across the country no fewer than 3.2 million seniors are graduating about now from more than 37,000 high schools. That's 37,000 valedictorians ... 37,000 class presidents ... 92,000 harmonizing altos ... 340,000 swaggering jocks ... 2,185,967 pairs of Uggs," he said in the speech published in the Boston Herald."
