Lee's Graduation from Francis Lewis High School Last Night

Last night we went to Lee's graduation at Naussau Coliseum. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the Keynote Speakers. Deputy Mayor Dennis Dennis Walcott and our Councilman John Liu also spoke. Every graduate had his/her phot shown on the big screen in the arena. The longest part of the program was when every graduate was called to the podium to shake hands with the principal.

Even simchas have their aggravation. Nassau Coliseum is about 20 miles from the school and the ceremony started at 6 PM which seemed to be an unsual time. I drove to Forest Hills to pick up my mother and from there drove to the arena. We really got stuck in rush hour traffic. What should have taken 45 minutes took 1 hour and 45 minutes. At the end of the ceremony we had a problem findng Lee in the crowd. He went to security who phoned us on our cell phone. We were worried for a while, but all's well the ends well.
