The individual elements of this article are sad onions. It’s about a kiddo, still just 6 years old, who has spent most of his life undergoing cancer treatments and receiving his wish from Make-A-Wish Arizona. His vision is irreparably damaged, as he lost one eye due to the treatment.

I keep regressing back to 10-year-old Eric mode when thinking about “Guardians of the Galaxy.” That little me, who comes packaged with a Lloyd Christmas haircut and habit of wearing utterly unflattering sweatpants, gets overeager and wicked tongue tied trying to express enthusiasm. The best part of a film or TV show or book was X, and Y, and sometimes Zed and Alpha too.

Congratulations, seniors. After a long 13-year voyage across a proverbial sea of knowledge, we have arrived, and are ready to leave port. We are now more mature, more learned, more worldly, due to the efforts of our teachers, parents, and friends that have taught us to navigate the educational waters.
