Graduation

Our school’s graduation took place this morning. The Class of 2007 is the first class of Weber graduates that I had the opportunity to teach. I taught all of them as tenth graders in American Literature and Composition, and I taught about a third of them again this year in Short Story/Drama and Composition. They’re a great group, and I will miss them dearly. If any of you happen by here, Weber Class of 2007, I want to send you the following message:

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

~ Bob Dylan, “Forever Young”

Congratulations, guys.  Come visit me next year.  I love you.
