I finally convinced myself to put my keys onto my Class of 2015 lanyard. I've been trying to deny the fact this is my last year of high school and my last year of it being socially acceptable to act like a child (but who cares about socially acceptable, I will act like a child anyways).
Thinking back on this, it could not be a more perfect time to be listening to the hymn "Because I have Been Given Much," because I really have. Heavenly Father is in the tiniest of details. He has blessed me with people that I can honestly say, have changed my life and saved me in times of need. And when I have felt that no one was there, I was reminded of the words my sister once said, "Let Christ be your best friend. If you allow Him to be, you will never be truly alone." As I listened and followed her advice so many times this school year, I've been able to find the strength to keep moving. To keep putting a smile on my face in times where it felt nearly impossible.
As we go on our way, to fulfill the things life has asked of us, I just want to thank every one of you that have played a part in not only my senior year, but in my life. We will cross paths again, and we will be happily reminded of the place that brought us together: the hallways of THS. I know that the world could not find any greater groups of kids than in those hallways. There is something about this school that brings us all together in some shape or form. May we all proudly say the we entered those hallways and made a difference. That we lifted up a soul in need, that we caused someone to know their true worth.
As we receive our diplomas in these next couple of weeks, take these last chances to put a smile on someone's face, to graduate with no regrets. Make these last moments count T-wolves. Change is coming no matter what, but it is up to us to choose what we will make of it and what we make our futures become. I love you all. Sincerely. Thank you for the examples you've given me these past 3 years, or even if its been in these past few months, weeks, days, hours. It's made a difference in who I am right now. I wish you good luck in college, missions or wherever the world will take you. We are all important and are here for a reason, its just up to us to go out and find what that reason is. And with Heavenly Father on our sides, we will find it and achieve it.
Let's go T-wolves. THS is truly the best.
