Weekly Phoneography Challenge: Future Tense

Deca 2

High school students walking towards a future in business, hospitality, and management

The other evening we came across hundreds of high school students who were in town to attend the DECA conference.  This organization prepares teens for future careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management.  Dressed in  their best business attire, they were heading towards the auditorium in DeVos Place for an awards ceremony.  As they rushed towards the auditorium, I paused to take this shot from the second floor balcony.

They remind me of the fragility and eagerness of that age.  And how for teens, hopes and ambition can soar or be ruthlessly crushed.  My wish is that their futures be bright and filled with opportunities.  And when they face disappointment–as they most certainly will because no one can avoid it–may they rise to the challenge and be tenacious in the pursuit of their dreams
