I have a saying, “One door shuts and I go to the next door. Keep on going to the next door until you get in. Stand tall and don’t let others get you down. Every day a new opportunity is waiting for me!” My first three years, I tried to find out when the Homecoming float assembly and skit practices were with no luck. My parents tried too. The day of the parade, I went alone and joined in anyhow without a matching class shirt but dressed in my class theme. My senior year, I didn’t have to chase down the information and I didn’t walk alone. I sat next to my homecoming partner, in my tuxudo on a Mercedes in the parade! I finally got in the right door and became Homecoming KING! Don’t let life shut you out, go to the next door!
