To all 2013 graduates: You need to stop and take a look at your future. Where are you going? What are you going to do? It is up to you to be what you can be.
But remember this cannot be done if you don't continue your education. Knowledge is the key to power. Listen brothers, most of you want to be football players, basketball players or rappers. Sisters, you want to be singers, models, actresses, maybe rappers too. All that is good, but everything gets old.
You need to use your mind, not just for tomorrow's glory but for life. Use the talent God has given you. Maybe you can be a teacher, doctor, lawyer, mayor, even president of United States -- something to last almost a lifetime, not for just a little while.
Life is what you will make it. Trust in the Lord. Ask him to guide you, and you will have a successful future. You are my future.
