Boys and girls and young adults, please stay in school until you graduate. Keep in mind, If my classmates are graduating I am going to do likewise. In the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s, many people finished high school. Say to yourself, I am not going to let anyone or anything stand in my way. Stay in school for your own well-being. Face the future with courage, chase your dreams and set no limits because your future begins today. Make a difference.
