Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

It was absolutely down to the wire yesterday. All in a panic over my daughter's graduation. Somehow she was informed the day before the ceremonies themselves, that she would have to redo a major project in order to get the one point needed to graduate. So... in a last ditch effort, and with a little help from friends and family, not to mention pulling an all-nighter, she managed to scrape up the all important point. Thank God.
Commencement included over 400 students in Truman High School's Class of 2004, and the ceremony itself took two hours from start to finish. (A lot of those in our group said they were ready to go, just as soon as she finished walking across the stage, lol) It did seem to drag on forever after that.
But still, it was a wonderful event, and I'm so glad she was able to participate. I'm really so proud of her, she's done an incredible job pulling it all back together at the last minute. So, the point I'm really trying to make here is... Congratulations, "Dun Laoghaire." I knew you could do it. You were awesome up there!
