You can best identify with a trapeze artist
At graduation time, you can best identify with a trapeze artist
Who knows he/she must let go of the one trapeze bar
If he/she is going to take hold of the next one.
So, like the trapeze artist, you too are discovering that
You must let go of that to which you have
Been tied if you are going to continue
To "graduate" through life.
To leave your friends, though, is to die a little,
But to stay is also to die. So it is that life calls us
To leave behind that which we have acquired
And acquire that which we do not possess.
As you swing through llfe and fly
From one trapeze bar to the next, life is both exciting and fun.
I trust that you will find this to be true.
P.S. May we all be willing to take a hold of the trapeze bar coming to us
and at the same time be willing to let go the trapeze bar we
have been holding on to.
