Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! What an exciting week for many young people across the country, as they prepare for one of the biggest milestones in life – graduation. The journey is just beginning whether it is high school graduation or college. I love this graduation speech delivered by Denzel Washington a few years ago; fall back or fall forward. Life is full of endless opportunities but many of us miss them because we are afraid to fail. But it takes more guts to try, and fail than it does to fall back. So, this week I ask you: Do you have the guts to fail? Let’s make it a great week!



“You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.” - Tom Brokaw

“We don't stop going to school when we graduate.” - Carol Burnett

“Graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning.” - Senator Orrin Hatch

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” - John Dewey

“Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle.” - Robert Anthony
