Graduation Poem

Graduation Acrostic Poem

I was a mother and a nurse back years ago. Once my two children were in 4th and 5th grade, I decided to go back to get my BSN degree going part time. It took about 5 years, but I accomplished this back in 1986. At that time, I thought this was a good incentive to inspire my 2 children to do well in school. I figured I was a" role model" for them. I got good grades and graduated with honors. They walked in my footsteps and went on to college also and became successful.

I was always told that anything can be taken away from you but your education. How true this is! You can lose your mate, your house, your job, your child, your parents...etc. I was always a firm believer of education. If you are lucky enough to never have to lose anything that drives you out into the work force then that is unique. Setting yourself up and being prepared is better then being surprised as an end result.

When I was growing up, my parents told me that "anything can be taken from you but your education." I remembered this and took this advice into my adulthood and passed this on to my 2 children. They listened to me and went on to college and are both very successful today. I hope they pass this good information down to their children also.
