Friday was the first of many and under the threat of severe thunderstroms and a tornado warning, I watched as nearly 400 young adults received their diplomas.
There were six speeches, some better than others. Students were encourages to be a linchpin--to be indispensible.
Student speakers spoke of dreams and the future. There were quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt, from Seth Godin, even Walt Disney. Sadly, no one quoted Dr. Seuss (a favorite of mine)
My favorite quote of the evening was spoken by the valedictorian and was a quote from Dumbledore, the headmaster of Harry Potter fame. This years graduating class grew up with the Harry Potter stories. Most seniors were born in 1995.
"It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live." ~ Albus Dumbledore
Are you dwelling on dreams and forgetting to live?
