Wow! They did it!

AP Lit Class at Graduation

What a special day it was!

I can only imagine what the parents were feeling upon seeing their children graduate. My pride was probably just a fraction of what they felt; nonetheless, when I saw them walking down the aisle, taking the stage, and receiving their diploma, it is as though my responsibility in this stage in their life has also been completed. Just like the parents in that auditorium, there is a part of me that wants to keep them close by, but there is a bigger part of me that wants them to stretch their wings and test their mettle. It is like I now have this vested interest to watch them fly as high as their wings can take them. I suppose this is what life is about — finding one’s place and, more importantly, finding oneself. To the class who made a difference in my life these last two years, I will be on the watch and will be around when you need a place to take shelter from your flight.
