By now the universities and colleges are completing their flurry of graduations. I know today is Queens College in New York City and yesterday was John Jay College of Criminal Justice also a part of the City University of New York. Congratulations to the class of 2012 from the institutions of higher learning.
In the northern region of the U. S. A. where high and elementary schools close end of June, this is the month for the high school, junior high, elementary and kindergarten graduations. Congratulations also to you and your parents if you are in that category. You too are part of the Class of 2012.
The Class of 2012
What is in store for the class of 2012? Have we made the opportunities for work, safety, peace, service, education, and finances better for them. I was at John Jay College’s graduation yesterday and Senator Charles Schumer was the guest speaker. He challenged the graduating class of 2012 to have a dream and go for it. Then he closed with the poem, “If” by Rudyard Kiplin. I encourage all graduates to read it. Go for it and be the best you. Congratulations Class of 2012. Well done!
