Their school is just a baby. It is a whopping three years old. This is its Inaugural Graduation. How exciting. I was pleased that I got a parking spot inside the school itself! We got primo seats too. Before the ceremony started there were prerecorded messages from the seniors. I was impressed by how many mentioned God and Jesus. Kristin got mentioned by her boyfriend which of course, made her day. The speeches were brief and poignant. Not at all boring. And with 352 graduates, the name reading went rather quickly. All in all, it was a very nice and NON boring ceremony.
So what is it I am asking today? Well I have to know...what do you deem appropriate dress for a graduation? Of any age! Whether it be a pre school graduation, or a high school one. I can not tell you how many women and young girls I saw wearing very short halter dresses which almost covered them. Let's not leave out the men/boys. Men who wore tanks or boys who sagged their pants well below the equator. Thank GOD for underpants! What a way to mock something that is to celebrate ones success!
Behave nice, or I will be blogging about you!
The high school graduation was not the only graduation we attended. Last night we also attended Seminary Graduation. Seminary is much like bible study. These kids get up for Seminary every day at 6AM for a 50 minute bible study class for all four years of high school. And they receive a diploma for doing so. This diploma is signed by our Prophet--it had other notable signatures on the diploma but that is the one I remember most. At this graduation, all were dressed modestly. The feel at this graduation was one of peace--the Spirit. That same feel can exist in all places so long as we permit it to do so. Why not dress and act appropriately in all things and in all places? Is that such a bad thing? These kids who graduated Seminary last night, tell me no it is not.Emmy's place!
