• Comanche High School Seniors Take “The Walk”

    I’m not the parent or grandparent of a senior and yet, this walk that meant so much to CHS seniors was very bittersweet to me as I snapped as many photos as I could. I know most of these young people and although they do not know it, they are very special to me for all kinds of reasons.

    I’ve watched them grow since they were little, and I’ve cheered their successes and cried over their failures. Of course, as a former teacher and “child rearer myself,” I automatically wonder if we have given them what they need, the tools to help them make it to the other side when life kicks them in the teeth and lays them flat.

    Have we shown them what it is to be a good husband, a good wife? Have we taught them to work, given them the work ethic that will ensure that they become  productive citizens of this country and not just people who will sit waiting for the next handout?

    Have we shown them what it is to be decent, God-fearing men and women, people able to rear children who will grow up to be the same?

    The bottom line is that we have done our best, and now…

    Seniors of the Class of 2013, we  wish you well. Get busy; you have a world to conquer!
