"Today I release you like a falcon into the future. Where and how high you fly will be completely up to you."
My mother whispered behind tears.
We stood in our last moment together at the airport as my departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate we hugged.
"You are a big girl now your father would have been so proud of you." She continued as tears streamed down from my eyes.
"I promise to do you proud mom. ” I said and smiled faintly we kissed .
“I love you so please take care of yourself"
I pulled away from her hug and walked away.
I walked to the long lines and got into the gate just in time of boarding.
It was that time of the year again where everyone headed back to varsity!
Well I was a newbie and it was nothing but a daunting and stressful time for me trying to figure out how I am going to fit in and make new friends .
I was determined to be the best in whatever it is that I do so that I would have something to be proud of in the pages of my life.
