THE BULL AND THE BIZARRE
If I spoke at commencement ...
Words of wisdom for the class of 2007.

With all of the commencements exercises going on this time of year, I stopped and began to wonder what would I say to a class of graduates. Actually, I have had the opportunity once and spoke for less than five minutes. The speech took weeks to write.
I know how important the presentations and encouragement to graduates can be. You see, I graduated in the bottom third of my high school class and received honors in college. I have earned two master's degree. One took the normal, 4 semesters. One took, 21 years from first class to graduation. I lived and learned over the last half century plus. So I think I could share a little of what I have learned with others.
But my thoughts this year turn to the chance that I have to write something witty on a graduation card. I have been invited to graduations from high school and colleges for associates degrees, bachelor's degrees and graduate degrees. Some of these folks are family, some are close friends, some acquaintances.
The following lines are not original. As a wise man once said, "there is nothing new under the sun." But these lines do possess much truth.
If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of graduates this month, congratulations!
