Surprise Speaker At High School Graduation Moves Shocked Crowd To Tears [VIDEO]
Remember your graduation? You may have cried, you may have been emotional, but this high school in Detroit had a guest speaker that moved the entire crowd. Who was it?
None other than their class president, Balaal Hollings, who had been out of school since April 6 when he got shot in the head. Hollings was a football star, honor student and senior class president, and while trying to break up a fight, was shot in the head. Nobody knew if he would ever be able to walk or talk again.
Than he showed up unannounced.
First of all, I want to thank God. It is so good to be alive. I got shot in the head, and I am fully rehabilitated.
I forgot a lot of stuff. I forgot how to walk. I forgot how to talk. I didn’t forget how to eat!
