POINT LOMA HIGH SCHOOL: 87TH COMMENCEMENT, JUNE 12

Thirteen years ago, in a different century,

parents watched 428 of their precious babies

enter kindergarten. Many parents and a few kids shed tears as classroom doors shut and small hands struggled to grip large wooden pencils.

Two weeks ago, those same parents watched with

bursting pride as their young adults grasped

high school diplomas with hands that now

tap smart phones and computer keyboards

in a world that often moves too quickly.

On this day, the world was a perfect place as

smiles radiated from every graduate’s youthful face. And once again, many parents wiped away tears.
