My dream and an airplane voyage today

Reporter : K2
My dream in my early boyhood was to be pilot.

For me, an airplane was like a flying carpet. I thought it could take me to anywhere I wish. I was curious about other countries, people, cultures, foods, and languages.... Unfortunately, I was not accepted by airlines to be a pilot. Therefore, I selected a job, whose scope is broaden and by which I can explore myself to overseas - mysterious world. I had worked for one of Japanese trading companies over 12 years and visited a lot of places and met a variety of people and experienced diversity of this world.

Today, my classmate Pete Large gave me a special chance to go to fantastic world "Airplane Voyage". He has a private license and frequently flies over cities surrounding this area. We traveled from Palo Alto and moved toward the north - flew over Half-moon Bay, Alcatraz Island, and San Francisco. Then, we flew over Santa Cruz and accidentally met quite big size of wild fire.... I was feeling like becoming a flying bird... like part of airplane. It was great experiences and made me recall my dream in my early boyhood. I recalled my dream, a dream almost forgot in my past hectic life.....

From my experience, I feel people is likely to have easier dream or goal in their life if s/he is getting older. This is because they can anticipate its result before the things happen and because they become conservative and passive. Especially, people become passive rather than proactive if they have spouse and children. I saw see such changes before and probably I am one of those examples.

During my fall term, we had a chance to watch a famous speech " I have a dream " made by Mathin Luther King Jr. long time ago. I was impressed with it, especially his statement "I have a dream. One day the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together." gave me deep impression as bing human being..... Mr. King believed his dream would come true even under the circumstances that black people was really and seriously discriminated from American society. He believe his thought and continuously persuade people surrounding him by delivering his dream and messages. He believed "Change" will happen under such harsh circumstance.

I am currently facing the end of my academic life. This is the departure from Stanford University and the moment I need to say Bye to all other Sloan Fellows. Almost every day, I told my friends here "Good Morning", "How are you" and "See you tomorrow". It was very simple and ordinary communication and a kind of my routine work. But, it will not work from the week after the next as most of fellows will leave here for somewhere in the world.

I have acquired a lot from this program and people involved. Also, I've gained more confidence to myself and became more balanced person. I really want to spend time to think about my eternal dream and try to align it with several things I would love to do in the near future.

Almost 13 years ago (Year 1995), when I graduated from Keio University (Japan), our colleage head mentioned to us "In English, they have another word to call "graduation". It is "Commencement". The word "commencement" means the graduation ceremony like you are experiencing today. However, this word means "start" as well. Therefore, even though you graduate from this University, this is just a beginning of your new life and you should pursue your dream forever."
I am really experiencing same things but this is the second "commencement" in my life.
