High School Graduation Ceremonies – Kids Grow Up Right Before Your Eyes – Unless You’re Charla Nash

Just take a look through my eyes
There’s a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You’ll be amazed what you’ll find
If you look through my eyes

I usually read about 20 national newspapers online daily, and an article on Charla Nash, from Stamford, CT in my hometown paper, The Hartford Courant, caught my eye.  Charla won’t be attending her daughter’s high school graduation ceremonies.

My regular readers and friends know that I’m from Connecticut. Stamford is in the lower part of the state from me. Charla , whom you may remember from seeing on Oprah, was the woman who was viciously attacked and disfigured by Travis the Chimp.

Now recuperating in the Boston area while awaiting a possible face and hand transplant, Charla has made the valiant and difficult decision not to attend her daughter’s high school graduation ceremony. The reasons stated in the article were that she doesn’t want to create a “media circus.”

As a parent of two grown daughters, my heart goes out to not only Charla, but her daughter as well.

My daughters have since graduated college, but it seems like just yesterday that first they were starting high school, and then graduating from high school. As parents, my husband and I marked with pride this milestone in not only our daughters’ lives, but ours as well.

If you’ll be attending a high school graduation ceremony soon, please think of Charla and her daughter – let Charla look through your eyes and send some good vibes and extra “woot” for them, so Charla can feel it and the pride that all of us share in “seeing” her daughter celebrate her  high school graduation.

  1. It seems that time is gaining speed like a huge snowball rolling downhill. But during special times like these, time freezes for one perfect moment, blessing us with a memory that can never be lost.

    • I didn’t quite finish sending that thoughts before the fat-finger of fate hit my Enter key.

      To continue: I pray that Charla will be able to enjoy her daughter’s graduation in other ways. I salute her selfless decision to keep the day’s focus on the graduating students by not attending. Her daughter is an amazing young woman who has stood by her mother with love and compassion as few could. She deserves a special day of her own.
