Ok, this is a note from everybody at (hehe) who would like to congratulate the graduates from Desert Christian High School class of 2002! Congratulations and I hope you continue to be the awesome group that you are. I love you guys! God Bless.

So, today is the day. We’ve been through the ceremony rehearsal, and have done our sound checks. We’re ready. Even though we’re not doing anything more than walking across a stage and getting a piece of paper in a nice booklet, we’re ready. Why is it so important, you know, to graduate? Well, I think it’s because it marks a stage in our lives that we will never go back to. It marks the beginning of a new life, one that can make or break us. I know I sounded insensitive when I said that all we were doing was walking across a stage. Cause it is a lot more than that. Once again, it’s memories. It’s honorable. We have weird hats on, and weird gowns on, but it’s what is. “TRADITION!” as Tevya would say in “Fiddler on the Roof.” I love it. It’s crazy, but I love it.

Tonight we will spend numerous hours hanging out and enjoying each other’s company. We will dance. We will talk. We will be who we are. And you know what, that’s what we do best! Tomorrow, nothing will be that different. We will have new memories of each other. We’ll be able to say that June 13th, 2002 was a day when, yes, we graduated, but we were able to be together one last time. At school I have this ongoing joke about standing up in front of the senior class and saying, “.. guys, we don’t have many more times like these..” and everyone gets made and tells me to sit down. But you know what, we don’t. There aren’t any more times of growing up together like we have been for the last few years. But it’s ok. I’ll cry about it for a little bit and then we will go our separate ways. That’s just how it is.

Well, to my seniors, this is it. Tonight will be good.
And for everyone just tuning in, well, I will let you know how everything goes on a later journal! But I knew I had to write something on the day I graduate.

oh, and have you seen me on 🙂
