2010 Graduation #4

Sadly graduation season came to a close Friday night. I covered four this year, which I suppose was about average for me though I like to cover at least five. This year I couldn't because so many of them were on the same night.

My favorite quote from yesterday evening?

Said by the valedictorian, "Someday your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching."

Of course I would be remiss if I didn't include this one as well. Said by the superintendent, who was quoting Arie Pencovici, "Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference."

This year I saw just under 1000 students graduate. I heard approximately 15 speeches by either students, faculty, or administrators as well as quite a few reverends.

It's been 20 years since my high school graduation and the older I get the more I am convinced that time really does fly.

The question I will leave you with is the one posed by the the movie of your life worth watching? And who is playing the part of you?

Hmmmm...I don't know if I would want to see the ENTIRE movie of my life (lots of boring shots of me reading) but with some editing, it might be worth a go. Of course, My Heritage already told me that James Spader will be playing me in the movie.

Wish my life was interesting enough...LOL. Maybe my 50's will be box office material.

Wonder if Andie McDowell could play me? Wishful thinking..
