WWII Vet Graduates

At the age of 90 Michael Zone, a World War II veteran, has graduated from high school. Even after all of his years of life experience he still saw the importance of an education.

According to a Huffington Post article Zone attended Desert Rose Adult High School. The school's motto, "It's never too late to graduate" has never been more true.

Friends of this blog know how much I adore stories like this one. I love to see adults who can truly say that it is never too late to be who they might have been. I know a lot of 20, 30, and 40 year olds who use their age as an excuse not to start something new, or go after a dream. Zone shows through his accomplishment that it can be done.

Zone values education saying, "Without an education you're lost." He also says that life is a lot more interesting when you have an education. I must say that I completely agree.

Check out this man's story  and if you have been putting something off because you think you are too old, think again.
