Congratulations you did it. Sure you did something that millions of people have done before…yes you still should feel accomplished…cuz you did it. Finally after years of perfect attendance and straight A’s you’ve graduated.
So now what’s next? A new career. A new chance at becoming the you you are meant to become.
Sure you may be walking away from college with a diploma and some debt. On average $35,000 dollars worth of debt. Congratulations class of 2015 you are the most in debt grads EVER!
Total education debt–including federal and private education loans–will tally nearly $68 billion this year for graduates with a bachelor’s degree and their parents. Thank goodness our country spends 80 billion on prisons.
In the meantime, we’ve spent over $700 billion dollars in Iraq. Another $800 billion dollars give or take in the Afghanistan War. Our country has spent over 1.7 TRILLION dollars on WAR in your life time! No biggy.
I know some of you -sitting here- aren’t even aware our country is in war cuz you’ve been too busy studying important things while your poor mom works two jobs –getting paid less than her male colleagues. And if your a person of color you’ve been busy obeying our militarized police force while staring down a barrel of a gun for a parking ticket.
Listen class of 2015, whatever you may do in life, no matter how bleak let summer blockbuster movies provide you with the required wisdom needed to survive these tough times.
If something chases you…RUN!
You have NO strings.
If there’s an earthquake we are all screwed.
And George Clooney really thinks you CAN change Tomorrow!
Except if you’re a woman you can only change tomorrow 77%
Congratulations Grads we’re depending on you to not screw up.
