  • Life Matters: Avoiding the graduation blues

    It can happen to you most any time and any place; all that's required is a stuffy auditorium filled with graduates in caps and gowns, a principal or president or superintendent who directs the program with boring predictability, speaks in a monotone voice with a staccato cadence, and of course, a guest speaker, who is prone to talk long after most have stopped listening.

    And then, quite suddenly in the midst of this, you are overcome by the graduation blues.
