S: Sydney Yvette Doway's High School Graduation 2012
FC: GANANDA HIGH SCHOOL
1: To: Sydney Yvette Doway Congratulations 2012 Grad!!! From Your Family, With Love | Oh, the places you'll go...
3: Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away!
5: A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
6: You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. | You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the woman who'll decide where to go.
7: You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care. About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there." | With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
8: The many faces of
9: Sydney Doway...
10: And you may not find any you'll want to go down. In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.
11: It's opener there in the wide open air. Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you.
12: MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND | Where words fail... music speaks.
13: A pet is the only thing on earth that will love you more than you love yourself.
14: And then things start to happen, don't worry. Don't stew. Just go right along. You'll start happening too.
15: So many clubs and after-school activities to sign up for! | OH! THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
16: 'til you drop!
20: You'll be on your way up! You'll be seeing great sights! You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights. You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed. You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead. Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except when you don't. Because, sometimes, you won't.
21: I'm sorry to say so but, sadly, it's true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups can happen to you. You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch. And your gang will fly on. You'll be left in a Lurch. You'll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump. And the chances are, then, that you'll be in a Slump. And when you're in a Slump, you're not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.
22: It's the friends you can call up at 4 am that matter
24: You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted. But mostly they're darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow & chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win? | And IF you go in, should you turn left or right...
25: Or go around back and sneak in from behind? Simple it's not, I'm afraid you will find, for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind. | or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
26: Other things may change us...
27: ...but we start and end with family.
28: NO! That's not for you! | Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying You'll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.
29: With banner flip-flapping, once more you'll ride high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because you're that kind of a girl!
30: Costa Rica
32: St. John
33: US VI
34: You can get so confused that you'll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space, headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
35: The Waiting Place... | ...for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or the waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.
37: Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. Fame! You'll be as famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win on TV. Except when they don't Because, sometimes they won't. I'm afraid that some times you'll play lonely games too. Games you can't win 'cause you'll play against you. All Alone! Whether you like it or not, Alone will be something you'll be quite a lot.
38: Many, many
41: But on you will go though the weather be foul. On you will go though your enemies prowl. On you will go though the Hakken-Kraks howl. Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak.
43: If you haven't got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
44: SYD, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS! | So... be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea, Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way!
46: Shake what ya momma gave ya and most of all be sassy
47: Wimps lift Weights, Cheerleaders lift People
51: You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way!
