Graduation - a time for reflection, a time for goodbyes, for memories recalled and for a bright new world - waiting - there ... yours for the taking!

Brain Tracy states, "You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you." Overly simplistic perhaps, but when you drill right down, most things in life are really quite simple.

So let's take a look at what the world can throw at you - the good, the bad and the ugly - and let's face it, there is quite a bit of the bad and the ugly.

You may find that the world throws indifference or apathy at you. You will find yourself facing prejudice and intolerance. You may even find that the world will laugh at your dreams or that people will try and discourage you from achieving your dreams, your goals, your aspirations. Financial constraints will most likely be ever present, as will the fluctuating courage and the conviction to continue - day by day and step by step.

But that's ok!

Keeping with the Clint Eastwood theme, I say, "Go on - make my day," because you have within you right now, everything you need to deal with what the world can throw at you.

You have a solid education empowering you to reach your limitless potential.

You have the courage of your convictions to challenge boundaries and obstacles that stand in your way.

You have the passion to dream wildly, the heart to cherish closely and the strength of character to honor your word.

As you stand on the brink of your graduation we entrust you - the future generation - with this responsibility:

have faith in the world,

challenge injustice,

embrace your strengths,

admit your failings,

value all that you have been taught,

know your own self worth

and hold unequivocally to this undeniable truth ... you have the right to be the best that you can be.
