My Aunt Rose came from Colorado for his graduation. The one he didn't even attend.

Mom, Gray, and Rose.

This is late. Better late than never.

Gray was a senior this year. He graduated with distinguished honors and a 4.3 GPA. Pretty radical. He was definitely in the top of his class. However, he had absolutely no desire to march at graduation.

So he didn't. He didn't want any part of the 3 hour rehearsal, or the hot, sweaty gym where graduation is held, or the crowds of people trying to take pictures, or the lame graduation speeches. So he did not go.

It angered a few family members, and lots of people questioned his decision. But in the end, my mom didn't care, so long as he borrowed his best friends cap and gown to take a picture.
