As summer wears on many seniors wake up to the fact that this will be their final year being protected in the family cocoon. Soon decisions about college, the military and life in general will make many of the current worries seem insignificant and trite.
Friends you thought would be around forever move on with new interests, hobbies and jobs. New families spring up to further splinter the old gang's relationships and plans.
Enjoy this last year Class of 2011. Drink deep from the cup of life and remember the adventure you live day to day. Work hard for perfection on the field and in the classroom, find that champion within, be somebody.
