Just as ships need to follow a course to get to their destination, so do we as
people. We need to have a course for our lives, too. We don’t want to just sail
around aimlessly, getting nowhere. We need to know where we are going.
Think of yourself as “Captain” of your own ship. Plan your course by setting
goals. Look at the final destination and try to keep it in sight even when the seas
around you are rough and the gales try to blow you off course.
Work hard, just as you have shown here tonight. Work together with your family
and friends. Best wishes and smoooooth sailing!
