Oh, the Places You'll Go

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." – e.e. cummings

It's been a while since we have attended a graduation. 

On Saturday Daniel's youngest sister graduated summa cum laude with her associates degree. 

Next step: bachelors

We are very proud of Emily, but even more so since she went the non-traditional route and took a full load of night classes while maintaining her full-time position in a marketing department. 

Not an easy achievement.

From the commencement address we learned that Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.

...and Walt Disney was let go from a newspaper for "not having enough imagination."

If you want something bad enough and you work hard enough, you can achieve it. 

Even if other people think you can't.

Congratulations Emily!!!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...
Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
