OPENING, CLOSING, AND FLAG CEREMONIES/04-09

longer you live.
â€¢ Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know
you left open.
Ever notice that the people who are late are often much
jollier than the people who have to wait for them?
â€¢ Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
â€¢ A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
â€¢ We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some
have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all exist very nicely in the same
