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.
