260 – Graduation Day

Somebody, somewhere, is graduating. In Wellington it seems almost every second day there’s a graduation parade. When we were in the parade it was a great day. I was amazed how total strangers stepped up and congratulated us and wished us well. How nice is that?

I have a real fondness in my heart for the graduates and the whole parade and graduation experience. I appreciate how the graduates have invested years of their lives and thousands of dollars in their futures, and how this will change their lives, and those of their family’s forever. It’s great to see proud parents and grandparents, friends and families gathering together to applaud the efforts – not just of the graduates, but also of themselves, because it takes a team effort to get someone up to the next level. And this makes it possible for someone else to get there too. A real lifting of the social wealth of the community – over time everyone becomes more prosperous and richer in every respect. Congratulations to graduates everywhere.

Manifesto
04. Every day is an opportunity to cultivate the promise of the future.
09. Every day learn something new.
18. Every day express love. Some people need to hear it. Most people need to see it. Donít take it for granted.
