"It is essential that we enable young people to see themselves as participants in one of the most exciting eras in history, and to have a sense of purpose in relation to it." -Nelson Rockefeller
This quote from one of the best presidents the United States never had probably speaks to each generation; it is especially relevant though to our times. Arts Week allows us to see on display the extraordinary talents of our young people. I marvel at how well our student actors, artists and musicians can perform. True, we have put the means and resources before them, but they constantly respond and surprise us with their talents. We should all be grateful that here we continue to expose our young people to the best in art, literature and music.
As I write this post, it’s Friday morning at 4:40 a.m. and I can’t help thinking how proud I am of our graduating class. If you’re wondering why I’m thinking about this at 4:40 a.m., it’s because I’m currently sitting in a chair on the front steps of the school, gazing out at 30+ tents sprawled across the great lawn of our upper campus where our Grade 12 students are mostly, fast asleep.
As I write my final article for the Health Corner Blog it is the most difficult article I have had to write. I honestly sit here and feel so many emotions at once and struggle with how to say good bye. Good byes are never easy, especially when the experience has been so memorable and rich, as they have been at De La Salle College ‘Oaklands’.
