It is a brave new world in America for today’s graduates.
Figuring out who they want to be, and where they want to go and juxtaposing that against what is possible makes life in these United States for recent high school graduates more complex than ever before.
College remains supremely important as educating oneself is key.
Education is paramount to achieving one’s dreams – that – and a bit of timing and luck.
There is no longer job security out there in the marketplace, even for the ambitious and the entrepreneurial.
There is only job insecurity and rapid change causing dramatic disruptions in peoples’ economic lives.
Those going on to college will endure college loans and paying for them for many, many years to come.
In the end, the college loans and the sacrifice will be worth it for most of those seeking a better life. Fear not.
Chase your dreams.
You will earn your success.
Nothing is so sweet as success.
