To all my dear seniors,
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
We have started to leave a legacy from day one, through running, walking, and even crawling to reach our goal which is to graduate. You’ve made it, despite the hardest times in your lives including this pandemic. I am sure many of you have had doubts about a certain class or two but here you are almost walking the stage in a week.
Throughout these three years of high school, life has taught me a lot about high school and I am sure you did as well; but i want to share one thing with you all. It's time to take control of our own lives and it’s up to us to make decisions CRAZY right? And it can be scary but you are greater than fear. You see, life is like a ludo ball: it spins itself, sometimes to things that we would never thought would happen to us and sometimes the worst things. It's okay to fail, cry, get stressed, it's life; as we all had many failures and doubts throughout high school and we learn to overcome, eventually the key is to keep moving and never think too small of yourselves and try your best.
I know the world we live in today, sometimes I call it the “monster world.” I mean who agrees with me this world is like a mystery to us and we have to explore it through life experiences and that sounds scary enough because you never know what’s going to happen to one in just a matter of seconds but it’s okay. We learn to explore and learn from our mistakes and continue to leave a legacy behind.
Goodbyes are hard, but as we move on with our lives, make sure to spin your ludo ball and see where life takes you! Class of 2020 you have completed this chapter, Phew! Now keep moving and let the journey begin!
