Such a joyous occasion. Families and friends crowded onto football fields and into auditorium lobbies. The hard work has paid off with a treasured piece of paper (or parchment as you move beyond high school), the smiles, tears, and congratulations of adoring parents, extended family and friends.
That’s the way it was. And, who knows, maybe it will be that way again.
Now our graduates are treated to celebrations like this.
We line them up in the church parking lot and friends drive by and hand them cards and gifts of congratulations. They honk their horns. They smile, they cheer. They do everything but touch.
And if you made it out of A&M, you may even get a treat like this one.
