"Remember all of the good times and all of the special people that were with you during them. Let go of the past, but don't forget it because there are a great many things that can be learned from what you have been through. And most importantly: follow your heart, stand up for what you believe in, and take your own path, always doing what YOU want to do."

"Seen a lot of the world, met a lot of friends got a lot of fond memories." - The Ataris 'teenage riot'

"I really and truly can't explain why we did such things. It's juvenile and embarrassing, but I can't help but think that if we had a chance to go back in time, we'd end up doing those things again." -Nicholas Sparks

"I'm so scared of everything. I'm scared of how things will turn out when I'm gone. We may say our friendship will last forever. And I do believe our friendship is strong and will never fail because neither one of us will allow it to, but we have no control over the distance that stands between us. It scares me knowing that you are going to be laughing and smiling with someone else other than me. And what scares me the most is that someone is going to take my space as your best friend. I can't bare the thought that when I'm sad and crying, someone else is going to be here wiping my tears from my face. I know a time is going to come soon when we have to part, but I ask myself why can't it be later and not now. Our lives are going to change once we part, and I fear that so much."

"Side by side or miles apart, dear friends are always close to heart."

"All I'm saying is, I want to look back and say that I did the best I could while I was stuck in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this place and played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place."

"I'll never regret these years." -Mest

"As I look back on all that's happened--growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me...there were times when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold." - C.L. Purdy

"Love is friendship. Friendship is trust. Trust is courage. And courage is the strength to say goodbye when you'd rather stay." - EE Cummings

"We're graduating from high school, not from each other." - 90210

"You're going to look back on this and realize it was all amazing . . . the good, bad and ugly. In the end, the bads don't really matter, 'cause you know you had so much fun."

"Sometimes there is no next time, no time outs, no second chances. Sometimes it's now or never."

"Let's make a pact. Here and now; we're here for each other always." - Now And Then

"It's hard to believe I've walked these halls for the past four years. Most of the people that have passed me every day I don't even know. Those I do know and know well are friends I will have forever. A life lesson: you will pass many in your travels and only a select few you will truly know. Don't judge those you only pass respect those you do know."

"I just hope it was okay; I know it wasn't perfect. I hope in the end we can laugh and say it was all worth it." - Ani DiFranco, 'hour follows hour'

"But when I think back on those months, I mostly remember the friends I made along the way and the good times we spent together." -Nicholas Sparks "The Choice"

"It's funny how the first time we were at this place, something between us was beginning.....but it breaks my heart to know that we are at this same place and that something between us is now ending."

"The young faces shown in these pictures represent times when our biggest worries were Barbie and Ken's wedding, GI Joe's missing arm, and why we had to eat vegetables at dinner...... Again. Looking at these pictures today, sometimes we, the seniors, wish we could go back to such carefree days. But at the same time moving on with our lives, making new memories, and gaining independence have become exciting realities that were once ideas that seemed so far away. Since 7th grade we have counted down the days until graduation. Now as the day approaches we are still anxious, but somewhat nervous. The faces in these pictures remind us of the people we once and still are, the friends we have grown up with and also with whom we will graduate. Surviving these past 12 years wasn't always easy, but in that time we had some of the best experiences of our lives. Those times are what made it worth while."

"I'm glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone."

"All I'm saying is, I want to look back and say that I did the best I could while I was stuck in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this place and played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place."
