Just Imagine Closing Ceremony

1 - Rudyard Kipling, the famous English author, who wrote the story of the Jungle Book, wrote a little poem.  It begins like this:
I keep six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew)_;
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.

2 - If you make these six your servants imagine the things you could do!  Just imagine for a minute that a little green man from outer space lands in your backyard.  Now he wants to know how the picture gets in the television?  What causes thunder?  Why does night come?  Where did your parents live before you were born?  Could you answer his questions?

3 - From this moment on you can decide to be an investigator.  Ask questions about everything that you have ever wondered about.  What are clouds made of?  Are all of the lights in the night sky stars?  How would I take care of myself if my parents were gone all day?   What can I make by myself?  How old are my pets compared to me?  What kind of insects live in the field behind my house?  How do they protect themselves?  What is the street made of?  Why is it cooler in the mountains than down in the valley?  If the mountains are closer to the sun shouldn't it be hotter?  If your parents, teachers and leaders can't give you the answers, then look to books and computers.  Just imagine!

4 - Look around and you will find hundreds of things waiting to be investigated.  You've only one life and future -- make the best of both!
