Today is the Tomorrow you Dreamed about Yesterday...

Never give up on a Dream; follow your dreams; reach for the stars; the future is yours; be all you can be; if you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it; to accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. And listen to your heart...

Yes, it's that time of year again: high school graduation.

I'm so glad I'm not famous and will never have to worry about being asked to give a commencement speech. (As if any high school would ask a homeschooling DOH to come speak at their graduation!)
  The brilliant and funny Pat Archbold at the National Catholic Register presents his own, more truthful version of a commencement speech. This is just the conclusion. Do read it all.

So today, on the day of your commencement, you are presented with certain challenges. We hand you an economy in shambles, mountains of debt which you cannot hope to repay, a massive social safety net into which you will be required to pay more and more but will likely never get to enjoy the benefits, a massive government equally voracious of your money and your liberty, and a culture of death that has already killed half of your generation.
But what is a commencement if not a call to begin. You need to begin to fix these things. You need to establish some fiscal and personal sanity in government and your lives. You need to begin to wrestle back the freedoms we willingly gave up, even at the cost of blood. You need to establish a culture that respects each and every life from conception to natural death. And the only way you can begin to do these things is by putting your faith in a God we never taught you about.

So commence, you have your work cut out for you. Best of luck. We are all rooting for you. If you need us, we will be in Florida.
