   Dreams of Grandeur

by Jamie Lynn A., Elmhurst, NY



The sky was a dazzling sapphire blue. The air was clean and fresh, unusual for New York City. There was a cool morning breeze on this first day of summer. The day couldn't be more perfect. I was surrounded by my family and friends, the people who mattered the most to me. In my crisp, white gown, I held onto my cap and followed the sea of green and white.

It would soon be my turn.

I approached the stage with care. Cameras flashed all around as I stepped onto the stage. At the other end, I saw it there waiting for me. I shook some hands, took in all the smiling faces and walked across the stage. Now it was within reach. I heard a "Congratulations" as a roll of cream white paper, tied with a crimson ribbon, was held out to me.
