Tonight was my fourth graduation in six days and still NO DR. SEUSS. This is exceptionally disappointing.
When I left my house, it was storming something fierce. Hail was flying, rain was pouring but the farther south I got the nicer the weather became. Still I thought, they're never gonna have this outside. The rain is following me. It's gonna be here shortly. That would be stupid.
Much to my surprise the graduation was, indeed, in the stadium. Thunder boomed in the background as the first speaker took the stage. I even saw a couple of lightening flashes and wondered if metal bleachers were a good idea.
But nary a drop fell. I saw 384 students graduate. Listened to six speeches and one Phil Collins song. My favorite quote of the evening was spoken by the superintendent.
"It is the person who never gets started that is destined to lose.”
Is there something you have yet to start?
