In Their Wake
The speeches have ended, Pomp and Circumstance has been played, the graduates have processed, and the guests have made their way to their cars. A joyous occasion with bittersweet goodbyes amid grand celebrations, although long anticipated, comes to a sudden end. As we stand amid the scattered chairs, like so much flotsam in the wake of the graduates, we ponder the future and look forward to whatever may come next. Crozet, Virginia.
