This year's month of May has had the most ever graduations in my family. On Saturday night, May 20, I attended my nephew, Zach's graduation. Along with about 300 of his fellow students, Zach walked down the aisle to receive his high school diploma from Charles Page High School.
The ceremony was filled with praise for the students, many times singling out specific students for their talents, character and individual best qualities.
The ceremony ended with a favorite teacher, Mr. Cooper, giving a heart-touching speech. I could tell he was a man with a soft heart and a love for his students. He was a friend to Zach. He began by reading from a book, called Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. If you ever get a chance please read this short book. Basically, it builds upon the love of a mother for her growing child, then when she is very old she had taught her son well and he tenderly loved his mother back and then loved his little baby with the same compassion.
