    I had no plans to make any comments. However after reading the 3rd comment, I feel I have to say to me this was not the time to be be airing out your thoughts about our president or the first lady. After all the first land was here not for you or I! She came for our students! As they try to move on with their lives. While still feel the loss of friends and class mates. They have shown great courage in all they have had to deal with and try to move on even with their own lives and futures. How wonderful for our seniors to know they had not been forgotten. To know that our community was still in their thoughts and prayers. That alone should mean so much to all of us, because we really did pull together a year ago. And we still see that in most everyone even now. I do know our troops are always in our thoughts and prayers. But this was not the time for your comments. This day belong to the class of 2008. And on that note I want to congradulate them and wish them the very best.

    thank you, mr. ignorant, inconsiderate liberal for using the wrong forum to bash someone. Last time i checked, Mrs. Bush was a librarian, an educator, not President ot warlord. EHS classes 07, 08,& 09 should be proud of what they have endured. Nothing can take that from them. there is disagreement over how to rebuild, but last night was not about politics or the city; it was all about the children that had to grow up way too fast and proved they could handle it. congratulations to them. Since your politics outweighs your respect and consideration towards our children, i got one more suggestion: Spell Check your work or we can buy you a speak n'spell from Toys R Us.

    I am very proud of the Enterprise students and teachers alike. I am honored that the First Lady took her time to come to our small town. It shows what kind of lady she is. The comment posted by "davaul" should have been screened by this web site. No one should be allowed to talk like that about our President, whether you agree with him or not. He is the leader of our country. It is clear that this person is of very low class and can't even spell or use correct grammer. He needs to take another look at the country instead of being a winey cry-baby with insults about our President and the First Lady. It is obvious that he is very young and doesn't have a clue as to what is going on in the world. He is about to wake up soon and be shocked as to what our country will be like once Pres. Bush is gone. He will be sorry for his attitude.

    Enterprise's High School Graduation was very well done. The only thing is family should have had priority over the general public. The Graduates of Enterprise High in of themselves have shown what our future holds and I feel much better about it.
