Forever Young

     At this year's graduation, the Class of 2010 presented a slideshow to those assembled parents, teachers, and friends.  One of the background songs was "Young Forever" by the rap artist Jay-Z.  I loved listening to the tune as I watched the slides, but while I watched the video and listened to the lyrics, I realized how meaningfully the music presented the pictures.  See what you think.  
     As an aside, the lyrics reminded me of the classic young adult book Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbott.  If you have not read the book, it is a great summer read.
