I have always had a special place in my heart for school.
Although it can be the most frustrating place, the loneliest place and even the place you hate to be,
it can also be a gathering place, an exciting place and a place of victory.
School is a place where your dreams thrive;
where anything you want to be seems possible.
School is a safe haven of friendships and experiences,
it guards your heart and your precious aspirations from the bleak, harsh reality of the real world.
It's a place where, for 17 or more years of your life,
you live and breath and bloom.
Here's to the first day of school;
may it bring wonder, smiles and a deep rooted joy in our expectations.
