Summer begins. The school year ends. Sheltered and familiar halls of learning will be left behind.
It’s time to venture into the unknown future.
For some, the promised journey is exciting. Others are hesitant to take this next step into an unfamiliar and very large world.
Emotions are deep.
All paths lead to life.
Many have traveled along this road.
Hopefully long, sometimes narrow, It is always a winding avenue. Complete with side trips, choices may lead to higher education, marriage or family. One decision will lead to service of country. All choices will hopefully lead to success.
Each traveler uses their personal key to open the door to the future.
Ahead lie many unexpected opportunities. Some may lead to a detour or temporary failure. The insight needed to understand complicated directions can help to find an individual’s happiness.
Life’s journey guides us by trial and error.
Remember the promise to beloved schoolmates? “Our class will be different. We’ll keep in touch and we won’t forget.” Friendships of high-school and college days are never forgotten.
Names may slip from mind, faces may fade, but memories of days spent with friends and comrades will remain for years.
It matters not which path is chosen. There will always be fond recollections of those days.
