Graduation is a great time in a person’s life, whether it is from High School, the Military, College, or whatever. It is a very special and memorable event in that person and their family’s life.
Today is the graduation at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, where almost 300 students will receive their diplomas. The commencement speaker will be President Bush. So not only, will the students get their diploma’s they will get to see and hear and possibly meet the President of the United States in person.
The local news stations have been reporting that protestors are showing up with their signs and banners against the President. While I do not always agree with everything the President says or does, he is still the President and deservers the respect due his position. But more importantly, the setting today is to honor the graduates, not a place for protestors.
Hopefully, today’s graduates will remember their graduation for what it is, not for what the protestors want it to be!
