Commencement

It was a beautiful day.  The sun was shinning and the birds singing.  A short man stood before the group in caps and gowns.  “Today is an auspicious day to take that step into the future.  You have learned a great many things and will be able to take those things forward with you into whatever you become.  You will one day look back on high school…”  The speaker droned on.  Karen was just glad she got here.  A C- in world history about dragged her under, but her A+ in both Algebra and Creative Writing had saved the day.
