“The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values. -William S. Burroughs
When a person graduates, it signifies the move from a previous form of existence to a more mature being. As this mature is progressing, many people come to the revelation that a graduation can be life changing. The simple marker or two phases helps to tie different parts of a life together with a common remembrance. A graduation is not just an end, it is a new beginning; the start of a new chapter in ones life whether it be another school year, or the entry into the workforce. Graduations help people remember the things accomplished in the past, as well as helping people to look forward to the future. When people think of a graduation they remember friends and family made or seen (respectively) throughout that time period; they think of the honors they achieved, and the many ways that those honors will help them to pursue future opportunity.
