For the class of 2012

Things happen every day,
All around the world,
Which change the course of history.
But you have lived a snug life
Safe inside your high school;
As you’ve been cocooned in your social life
They have never touched you.

In English class you examined them
With a magnifying glass,
Collecting every detail
That you might be an expert
On every tiny detail
And report on what you find.

In social studies you dissected them
With a scalpel,
Analyzing all the inner parts
Of what caused the world
To get where it is today.

But today the metamorphose has begun,
As you embark on a new phase of your life.
No longer are these events
Tools for your education;
It is time for you to claim them as your own,
And to decide what you will do.
This is your inheritance—
It is up to you
To change
The world.

I like that part about examining details of events with a magnifying glass. How different the world is "out there" as compared to high school, and yet not so different...

This really touched me as my youngest is graduating high school in less than two weeks. If she is any example, the world is in good hands.
