Peach State says: Stepping Into Adulthood
The experience is unlike any other. Another year of school has come to an end creating a new set of graduates…each of them eager to take the chances and paths ahead of them…leaving their childhood behind and Stepping Into Adulthood!
Pomp and Circumstance plays over and over again, in a vicious circle, until it echoes in your head. Young men and women dressed in ceremonial cap and gowns as tassels bounce and sway with each choreographed step. Family and friends gather to watch with memories tearfully filling their head.
“I remember when..”.
“My baby is all grown up….”
“It happened so fast…”
If they don’t hear these statements they’re thinking them.
The speakers stand nervously to motivate and encourage this new collection of excited minds. The world is the limit and nothing is out of reach for this collective. Finally the roll call of names begins and your heart begins to beat furiously inside your chest. It seems to drown out the announcer but robotically you stand as those around you stand and wait, walk, wait, walk and wait…
That’s my name…walk…smile…shake with right…reach with the left…turn…walk off stage…BREATHE!
Somewhere in the distance you can hear well wishes and cheers…and then it hits you!
I need a job! A good one…and college…and MONEY!
Welcome to Adulthood!.
Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2013…Well Done!
(In honor of my dearest friends and their graduating son!)
Have a great day!
