"The rest of your life is ahead of you." You can do anything you put your mind to." "The sky is the limit." Without sounding too pessimistic I wonder if we really believe that. Are those just words that are supposed to encourage and motivate or do we really believe that these things are true? Since I was not the speaker yesterday I could not share these thoughts, so I will share with you what I believe we should tell the Class of 2009.
- Life passes by too fast, don't waste it on empty pursuits. Find out why you were created and live a "purpose driven" life.
- There are going to be limitations in our lives, and there will be setbacks. Don't allow these things to keep you from fulfilling God given dreams.
- High School is not the end of your education, it has just prepared you to be educated in this thing we call life.
