Congratulations! Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
—Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

A very good friend of mine once told me “If it’s meant to be, it is up to me”. Such a simple phrase with such a powerful message. Class of 2012 if it’s meant to be it is up to YOU! You are one step closer to fulfilling your dreams. High school is rough on your psyche but it gets better. High school education is sometimes  tough but your education is worth it so don’t stop there. Go to college get educated even more and you’ll be the better for it.

Your life goals can be attained but it is up to YOU! Don’t give up, don’t falter, work hard and when you feel like giving up work even harder you will not be disappointed with the outcome. “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
