A Christmas Walk
This advent season I am supremely grateful for this class of 2015 who have sacrificed much to walk across the graduation stage. What they do not realize is that it means much to those sitting and watching. This ceremony is as much about those who have invested in them as their own effort. They are walking for those who are watching. I get that. It’s like the wedding of a young couple who endure the fanfare surrounding their love when they are ready to just get on with life already. They did not elope, but enjoyed/endured the formalities for all of those who have invested in their life. However, its good. It’s right and proper to celebrate.
This day I say congratulations to all those walking across the stage, including my brother, friend, thought catalyst, life coach, and humorist, J Josh Smith. Congratulations brother.
