    Daniel was salutatorian in high school but didn't give a speech. Also the valedictorian didn't give a speech or even attend the graduation because his high school was, as we find out, cruel. Ken Reid wanted his high school to have a maledictorian. Renee Colvert went to Knott's Merry Farm and saw a show which raises some questions about the rapture. I don't like haunted houses.
