What is Water?
I had previously heard the analogy of the fish and the water but I had not connected it to this speech. This animated version of the graduation address is a piece of art in itself, in addition to the message it conveys.

I think this is something that our kids think of a lot. Are you holding back something that seems too obvious to share? This animated short may be that thing that someone needs to watch to give them that push to go further, dig deeper, or share more often.
