The beginning seems so far away now, it's hard to imagine it at times. We, all of us, were thrown together into a place where everything would be a first again. Scared on our own, with no one to guide us. None of us could have possibly pictured what would happen in the moments to come. But we awaited them with great anticipation to make many memorable experiences, good and bad.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of
foolishness, it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season
of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the
spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had
everything before us and we had nothing before
us..." as Charles Dickens put it so well.
College was our next plateau, our next mountain to climb. Where we would rise above the horizons and look into the sun. Where we would find out what we can do and what we were to become. So many trials of faith we bestowed upon each other. We trust, we love, we laugh, we cry. We were to break down our walls and let our souls fly, with ease and unconsciousness. Soon we would earn our wings, and fly, soar and overcome everything in our path. We bonded new and everlasting friendships. We took time to hear, listen and understand each other. We will grow from our greatest triumphs, our deepest downfalls.
From experiences of emotions... sorrow, pain, despair, we will discover ourselves as more and meaningful. The process bestowed upon us to become teachers, preachers, leaders, followers, partners and lovers. We will share our darkest secrets, thoughts and ideas. From there we will compare, change, and grow again. Through all that will occur we will become something bigger than all of us, bigger than life. It will be like we are one. One, and then again many. We will become people, citizens, adults, who are more aware of what is expected of us, what we are to become. We become...
