We spent some time over at UVU this weekend. Celebrating two sisters who graduated.
However, as you can see from our cake that not only was there 2 that graduated this semester but 7 from our big family. Hooray for finishing school!
As I have gone to these graduations, I've realized how grateful I am that I have my education, and that I was able to finish school.
There is a lot of power and confidence that is acquired when one is educated.
During this last graduation, the Dean of the School shared a vital fact:
Statistics show that 42% of students who graduate college never pick up another book.
Isn't that shocking.
What a waste education can be if we don't continue to learn and continue to grow.
Even if school wasn't finished, books can teach and educate just as well as school.
However, after i heard that statistic i wrote down a couple more books that I'd like to add to my reading list... Which book are you going to add? (wink)
