If you are feeling a little low on energy and want a pick me up, go to a high school graduation. You could simply crash any graduation, you don’t need to know anyone graduating. They are such feel good events.
I went to the AFSE graduation yesterday.
This is the fourth class that has graduated from AFSE and I think I have been able to attend every graduation. It really is such a great way to spend a couple of hours.
I like the procession music, I like the faces on the students as they walk in. It is a mix of apprehension, pride, and excitement.
I like the speeches by the students. I like the speeches by the teachers and school leaders.
I like the handing out of the diplomas.
I like the joyous hugs from proud family members after the ceremony is over.
There really is nothing quite like the sense of opportunity, promise, and achievement that pervades high school graduations. If you have an opportunity to attend one this week, I strongly recommend it.
