OUR OPINION: GRADUATION
We knew they could do it.
June 4, 2009, not to be confused with July 4, 2009, but it was apparent that some people were confused. There was a group of people standing directly in front of our section of bleachers that were having quite a little party during the entire ceremony. They were laughing, talking in not so quiet voices and talking on their cell phones, doing all of this with their backs to the ceremony. The only time they turned around during the entire ceremony was at the very end when the fireworks went off. That's how I know they were confused about the date.
