Forever Young…that’s how the last episode started with the kids of Glee…and what an appropriate song to commence the commencement process. (And while we loved this episode we didn’t need nearly as many tissues as we had hoped. And did anyone else feel the show left a lot of open questions???) It’s been a long road…or not that long really, so true to life. For those graduating with the class of McKinley High this year, we wish you the best and we wish all your dreams come true. For those of you, like us, who have long since graduated, and even attended our reunions, may you stay…forever young!
With tears, sadness and joy…these are our 5 favorite moments of Glee: Goodbye!
5. The underclass’ dedication to Finn by singing The Beatles “In My Life”. Pure Gold!
4.Puck graduating from high school! We thought they’d keep him another year…but he did it!
3.Quinn saying goodbye to Coach Sue Sylvester and telling her she’ll miss her!
2. Santana’s mom giving her money for college and telling her to follow her dreams! Santana has easily become one of our favorite characters of the show…and we can’t wait to see what she does with the money!
1. And of course our favorite moment is the closing scene when Rachel says goodbye to all of her friends and hits the streets of New York City…all to the song Roots Before Branches!
And then…they were gone. We will forever miss them, although they’ll all be back next season in some capacity…but as for the halls of McKinley High…they are gone. And the rest of us??? We’ll grow older, remember and talk about where we were in our own lives the year the kids of Glee graduated from high school and we’ll move on…and on…and on…surrender. Goodbye.
Be Yourself. Be Fearless. Be Your Own Unexpected Luxury!
