Pretty large graduating class. Far more female honor students than male. Are women smarter (or just more focussed) than men? Is it that maturity thing?
Sure was a lot of young people about to embark into this insane world we live in.
Wonder how many of them even have a clue what they'd like to do with their future? Are they cattle matching down the chute to the abbattoir or newly-minted adults about to make calculated, rational decisions?
By my twentieth re-union I think eight of my classmates were dead. This particular class, 2010, had already lost two of theirs.
Here's to my friend's son, a fine young man named Keenan. May you live and love well and make the most of life. Dreams are within reach. It is just a question of how bad you want it.
Another friend's son graduates tomorrow. Stefan, I wish the same for you!
Time for this old man to hit the sack.
