Teenagers are so resourceful. Today a big group of them showed up with food, volleyball, music, and a piñata at their teacher’s house, to celebrate their high school graduation. They hooted and hollered, ate and ate, showed off their skill on the piano and applauded one another. They were nice to a little girl who had no one else to play with. Soon they will all go off to their respective universities, each of them a first-generation college student, full of hopes and dreams. They give me hope for the future. We’ll be hearing from them in years to come.
