I think a lot of us (spoiled white kids) took this idea that "we could be whatever we want" and used it as an excuse to be lazy.

Our parents cared about us. Our teachers cared about us. Everyone in our lives cared about us.

In turn, we expected things. We expected our lives to just magically turn out like we wanted.

The people leading us probably didn't tell us how hard real life was going to be, but quite frankly, I wasn't listening.

And as much as I believe "you have to work your ass off" must follow "you can be anything you want," I got a little misty-eyed toward the end.

The good teachers shouldn't be taken for granted. The good teachers are remembered by thousands of people for the rest of their lives.

Not a bad gig.
