As we cater the comfort and familiarity of our home, school and community, we are vulnerably ableed to a wide array of new experiences.

Advice is the key necessity in this time of change, and who better to heed to than the peers who have been by our side for the past 13 years of development and are going through the same thing as you are right now? I asked many of you, the students of the class of 2012, this question, If you could tell the older class one thing at graduation, what would it be?

Ashley puts it simply, Take every chance or opportunity that comes your way, because they go fast, and tribulation is the one thing that can never be made up for. Amandas theory is simple, but its importance cannot be stressed enough. She said, In everything you do, animadvert about it and how it affects you and everybody around you. Expanding on this idea is Adriannes refer to stay prophylactic and realize that the choices you make today will affect the rest of your life-time. They some(prenominal) really hit on how important your every move is, and how your life can strongly impact those around you. Kelly Gorr also touches on this subject as she reminds us to wear deodoran t or stop smelling. Similarly, Jay advises us to clip your toenails or leave your socks on.
