Shortly after.. these chairs were filled with yet again, another graduating class of young people eager to march forward and leave their mark upon this world.
On the morning after.. these same graduates would awaken to yet another reminder of the world that awaits them.
A world filled with hate, anger, strife, division, judgement, condemnation, shame, guilt, and [fill in the blank]. Sadly, that’s just on Facebook.
The world? Well, that’s a whole other story. My heart simply breaks at such violence and disregard for human life.
A year later, these same chairs will yet again wait upon another graduating class of young people eager to march forward and leave their mark upon this world, as well.
I wonder what they will awaken to?
We have 365 days to make this world a better place before these seats fill up again. Let’s make every one of these days count.
It begins with me, you, and every last one of us.
God help us.
