Promises Kept

“In life we all need to find a purpose. I’ve thought of many different things that I thought could be my purpose. But standing here today I have realized my purpose is to help people just like you. Purpose is the reason you journey, passion is the fire that lights your way. Being here today is the fire down in my soul that has encouraged me to move on. Just remember the words that I have said and the memories that you have had with me since I have been at Sweetser School.”
