Give a speech
Chances are that your speech will be a lot more meaningful and heartfelt than the usual graduation speeches as you celebrate your child's success. But be sure to make it formal. If you're able to invite a few family members, ask them to come in their finery and set out some socially distant chairs in the garden -- or have everyone join virtually via Zoom or Google hangout. Take the time to give the setting and the speech the gravitas it truly deserves.
