A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
- Grace Murray Hopper
This is a good quote to remember while we are preparing for high school. We are the ships. The port is [my old school]. I have been here for almost a decade. Nine years is a long time. But it is now time to head out into the sea of our different high schools and find our port there. We, the human race, are stronger than we thing. For many of us, all our lives are spent in the same port. If we would put ourselves up to battling the crashing waves, we might just get further than before. However, that's only if we do what we were built for.
