I am not a religious man. Nor will I look at this cross as a symbol of religion. I’m keeping this because of the love behind this momento my father gave me as part of graduation present, I will keep it near forever. It symbolizes family. It symbolizes something worth more than all the money in the world. It symbolizies chasing my dream. It symbolizes living life to the fullest. It symbolizes opening that next chapter of my life. And the end of this one. This is a symbol of my begending. And I look forward to the future, but shall never forget the past.
I’m keeping this broom head for the rest of my life. This represents all the good times that I had with my percussion group, the jazz band, wind ensemble, and all the individuals involved with those groups. I broke my third broom at the performance tonight, and its the greatest piece of memorabilia I could ever ask for. High school is over, but these memories will never fade.
