Graduation Day

Good Essays
Graduation day is what all high school students are waiting for, the big day we all think as grown people and we’ve made the right decisions because of how far we’ve gotten. Graduation was one of my of my most memorable moments in my life, it’s like a new start to my future. We all come to think college is the next step to our pathway and we all mainly do it for a better future, but most importantly to make our parents and family proud, and to me it seems like education is your number one priority and with out it who can you become? My grandparents were my biggest reason to keep pushing forward and accomplish all my hard work I put into my education. My grandparents get serious when it comes to school and they’ve always said they liked to see each and one of there grandchildren graduate. I grew up with my grandparents and we lived under the same roof at a point in time and I learned so much from them and I felt our bond got a lot stronger. A night before graduation, I received a call from my grandmother. She called to say they wouldn’t be able to attend my graduation ceremony. The year I graduated I had another cousin who was also graduating, but from a different school. My grandparents chose to attend my cousins ceremony rather than mine, I’m sure they wished to attend both graduations because both of their granddaughters were just as important to them, but at that moment I only thought it was fair for them to come to my ceremony because for that same reason, I knew this could happen, and I wanted to be the first one to ask them to assist in my graduation rather than hers. And at that moment I was only thinking for myself, which was selfish in a way, but then again I didn’t care. I felt horrible when she called to say they wouldn’t be able to attend my ceremony. They have influenced me so much through out my years, just as well as my parents has. To them it is important to see all there grandchildren graduate and walk the stage. I remember well when
