Graduation, after walking across that stage, brings a new life. It could be the happiest moment of one’s life or the saddest. People always say they want school to end because it’s too much. But really, it’s hard to let it go.

Dreaming of this as kids, and now going through with it is something to be proud of. This is one of those moment’s that will stick with a person for the rest of their life. Once it is over, you’re officially in the real world. Whether it is going off to college, finding a full-time job, or serving in our military, it is finding the next step in life.

When starting school at a young age, people don’t know what the point of education is. Progressing overtime, you reach middle school. Which prepares you for high school, which is totally different. When you finally get to high school, everything comes into play. From freshman to senior might feel like a long time, but it will go by quickly. Realizing why you have to go to school, it is now time to crack down and get grades up.

Graduation is a time to look back at all of the great memories and accomplishments that were made over the years in school. It is an honor to represent your school and strive to be the best student you can be.

But don’t take it for granted, because not everyone graduates. Some people end up repeating the 12th grade or taking summer classes. In the end, when the name is called and the tassel is turned, everything will change.
