A few months back, I wrote a message to the Class of 2020. At that time, none of the graduates expected a graduation ceremony. My two grandsons accepted, with disappointment, the end of their last year in high school, without a prom, or ceremony.
I was so happy when both schools decided to hold a graduation ceremony on their football field, following all guidelines of the CDC in separating students and parents, from each other, and requiring we all wear masks. Sometimes, it can be difficult, for me, to say personally what my heart wants to say to them, so I wrote it in prose.
I believe they would want me to share this with all graduates who worked hard for the opportunity to enjoy their years of hard work. So here it is!
TO THE GRADUATION CLASS OF 2020 WHEREVER YOU ARE
by Paula Perron
Stay as sweet as you are
I promise you will go far
Be proud of the distance you have come
And happy you are now an alum.
Take the road you are destined for
I know you will be something more
In times like this some will win
So face all obstacles with a grin
Be steadfast in all that you do
For the best will forever come to you
