Dr. Bruce Powell General Studies Principal June 18, 1981 Dear Graduates, During the senior year, one often spends a great deal of tinne pondering tl^e notions of " endings " and " beginnings, " Both ideas are exciting to the point of exhilirotion and very scary. On the one hand, you are culnninating twelve years of hard worl , discipline, set hours, and the close attention of your teachers and principals. You are bidding farev^eil, in a sense, to a warm, closely-knit world, a world of securi- ty, open doors, and clear directions. On the other hand, and most importantly, you are offi- cially ending the safe environment of child- hood and entering an adult world where, all of a sudden, you become legally, morally, and socially responsible for making crucial choices and decisions for life. You must now apply the skills, knowledge and disciplines developed during the past twelve years to aid in analyzing various options. The most strenuous challenge will come in the making of moral choices. No longer will there exist a simple black and white " moral scheme. The myriad shades of ethical decision making will tax your countf °^^ commitment to the extreme. In essence, the choices you make from now on really Even though it is important to ponder future responsibilities and past achievements you must not lose sight of your present existence. Be aware of the future and past, but plan to " live " right now I he future and past are inexorably composed of every action you do at the present time tssentially, the past and future is the present. Concentrate your energies in absorbing the magnifi- cence of G-d s world. Sensitize yourselves to the intricate and mystifying relationship between mankind and nature. Enjoy the very act of breathing, seeing, smelling, and touching. Don ' t miss out on your present life experiences by living in the future or past. By losing the " now " there will be no other chance to relive it in another dimension of time. Finally, in thinking about " beginnings " and " endings, " and about the " time dimension " in which you plan to live, remember the line from Shakespeare ' s play, Hamlet, where Polonius advised his son Laertes: This above all- to thine one self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man. Since I cannot improve on the Bard ' s advice, I shall end as he did, " Farewell: my blessing season this in thee. c ,^:^^^:tr Sincerely, Bruce J. Powell, Ph.D.
