It's the Beginning

In honor of my son’s high school graduation tomorrow, here are a few graduation/growing up-themed quotes:

“There is a good reason they call these ceremonies ‘commencement exercises.’ Graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning.”
—Orrin Hatch

“The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse.”
—Edward Koch

And my favorite:

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
—e.e. cummings

What an exciting time! Congratulations to all of you.

Cary is flying out to Dallas tomorrow to attend our granddaughter's graduation. I hope they don't get any tornadoes though.
