To my kind, bright, fearless sisters,
As I sit down to write this, the first thing I can think to say is thank you. Thank you for giving me four amazing years, for the countless laughs, and for the memories that I will hold dear to me forever. I cannot imagine spending these years with anyone else and I am forever grateful that I was given the opportunity to know each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself and for playing a part in shaping who I became in my high school years. Whether we were close or not, you all impacted my life hugely. You showed me your kindness, your compassion, and your wonderful hearts, and I will take each one of you with me as I continue in my years beyond Mercy.
Before we each go our own ways, I want to take you back to our freshman year. The theme for the school year was "Be bold, be bright, be you. Live Mercy." Fast forward a couple years and here we are. Mercy has prepared us to be bold, to be bright, and to be ourselves. I have confidence in every single one of you that you can change the world, and my wish is that you have that same confidence in yourselves. Show the world that bright, fearless person that you are and most of all, live Mercy. Remember your values, remember your wishes, and remember your sisters. You are nothing short of amazing and you will do nothing smaller than amazing things in this crazy world. And most of all, know that when the world gets just a little too crazy, you have a home in Mercy and a sister in me. I love you all endlessly and I don't know how to thank you enough for giving me such an incredible high school experience.
Love your forever sister,
