The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.

You’ve been preparing all your life for today. Now it is here to be lived.

The obstacles you encounter may seem formidable. Yet you are now fully ready to face them and to truly make a difference.

You are more experienced today than you’ve ever been. You are more knowledgeable, more capable, more thoughtful, refined and informed than ever before.

And that makes today an opportunity such as you’ve never known before. This day, this moment is a grand culmination of all that you’ve ever been through.

As you live this day, keep in mind what it has taken to get you here. Remember and appreciate all the dreams, efforts, hopes, frustrations, setbacks and victories that have carried you to this point.

And then make sure this day lives up to all you’ve done to get here by making it worthy of all you’ve put into it. Go out and make this day the greatest one yet.

— Ralph Marston
