On Wednesday, May 26, Sedona Red Rock High School releases another batch of seniors out into the world.
With the onset of graduation season, I began to reflect on my feelings at the age of 18 as I prepared to take the next step in my life. I remember being excited and feeling as if I really could do or be anything.
It’s a bittersweet time in a teenager’s life when he or she says goodbye to old friends and family, and heads out alone toward an unknown future.
Some of Sedona’s graduates will be excited — they can’t wait to get out of here; others will be scared — they’re leaving the safety net they’ve created over the years. Most will feel a mix of both emotions.
Graduating from high school is a sacred right of passage in our culture, and when you’re at that point, it can feel like one of the biggest changes you’ve faced in your life, because it is.
Now, as Sedona’s graduates do the same, I called on the Sedona Red Rock News staff to offer some words of wisdom to the class of 2010. Congratulations graduates.
