On a recent safe walk around our neighborhood, my dear wife Karen and I noticed a house or two proclaiming pride for Liverpool High School seniors who are celebrating their graduation.
Well done, students.
What a time to be sent off to other things, be it college, trade school, gap years, jobs. Life. What’s in store in these months, years, to come?
These seniors had to finish their final year of high school without going to the school. They took those last classes online, from home. They missed the socialization so important to life, the mixing and matching and send-offs from those that have sat next to them for their whole lives so far.
And those that have been accepted to colleges for fall … will those campuses be open? Will they be called to study online some more?
What about the careers in the majors they have chosen? Will they stand up in the new economy?
How are they feeling health-wise today?
Yes, a lot went through my mind when I passed those lawn signs.
It’s got to get better down the line, seniors.
Good luck and Godspeed.
