It is never too late to achieve something in our life. All we need is the determination to achieve our goals and 90-year-old has proven that... The school sent the General Motors Corp. retiree an honorary diploma for "life credits" this past winter to his home in Cape Coral, Fla. Southwestern Principal Garnet R. Green later said Locher's family had contacted the school about the diploma and allowing him to participate in commencement. "When I opened it up, I almost fainted," Locher said a few hours before the ceremony from his daughter's home outside Lansing. "I thought someone was playing a real cruel joke on me." Locher left school after 10th grade, with the city and rest of the country mired in the Depression and his father suffering from tuberculosis. This guy set a fine example for others to follow. What do you think? Read more: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080610/ap_on_fe_st/odd90_year_old_graduate;_ylt=AsUqnKexNY.8R8YzjxyVopntiBIF

You are right if you have something in my mind and you want it to happen it is never to late to let it happen because you have to believe it can happen. If you want changes you can do and the best time is now. I can believe I am typing this reply, this word must have sink in in my mind. I have to tell it to myself also.LOL. But I am very proud of that person.
