Beginning Greatness

With Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" booming from an industrial-sized stereo system, Cheney High School's class of 2020 began a victory lap through the remodeled high school's bus loop and eventually the community last Friday night. While the title might seem an irreverent nod to moving on, the song's lyrics more than sum up what this year's seniors have been through.

Titled "The Hour of Greatness," last Friday's graduation event seemed more a beginning than an end - and rightly so.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road

Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go

So make the best of this test and don't ask why

It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind

Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time

Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial

For what it's worth it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), Green Day from 1997's album "Nimrod"
