Here’s to the graduates!
Today we salute the Class of 2017 — these young men and women from Central Iowa who have worked dilligently, excelled academically and have showcased their talents in a variety of ways that we can all be proud of.
As they prepare to embark on a new adventure, I offer the following from lyricist Mindi Dickstein:
There’s a life
That I am meant to lead
A life like nothing I have known
I can feel it
And it’s far from here
I’ve got to find it on my own
Even now I feel its heat upon my skin.
A life of passion that pulls me from within,
A life that I am making to begin.
There must be somewhere I can be
I’ll find my way
I’ll find it far away
I’ll find it in the unexpected and unknown
I’ll find my life in my own way
Here I go
And there’s no turning back
My great adventure has begun
I may be small
But I’ve got giant plans
To shine as greatly as the sun
I will blaze until I find my time and place
I will be fearless,
Surrendering modesty and grace
I will not disappear without a trace
I’ll shout and start a riot
Be anything but quiet
I’ll be Astonishing
