No one could have imagined.
Who would have thought.
High School Graduation. Usually So Ho Hum. Speeches. Scholarship Winners. And the endless droning of names with dutiful students standing up, walking across a stage, hand shaking and the final presentation of a diploma.
For Years and Years. Always the Same Ceremony.
But Now it is 2020.
These high school graduates, who were 9/11 babies, are Breaking Ground on a Brave New World.
It’s fitting that this graduation follows the Brave New World Theme.
A ZOOM Ceremony. Logged on and ready.
From the Safety of Home. With Friends Watching the Laptop Screen on FaceTime. Electronics all in Gear. Only the Decorations are Old School.
Class of 2020, We will Follow Your Lead.
You have proven you can navigate the way.
The Way to Our Brave New World.
A World Where We All Pray for Magic.
