'Here we are at 1968,' begins Neil, 'and the world is a terrible place, full of pitfalls, and people who will misunderstand you.'He chews on his pipe.'We have quite a few of you older ones leaving this summer. It's going to be very different here without you, when the younger ones return in the autumn..but you've all made your mark in the community in one way or another, and I'm sad to see you go..... To my mind, I would rather a lad chose to be a happy road sweeper than an unhappy professor. That goes for the lassies, too. Whatever your plans are, I hope that you have all gained enough self-knowledge and emotional maturity here at Summerhill to take you through the trials that will surely face you in that big wide world out there.'He puffs on his pipe some more.'You will come across people who may try to take advantage of you. Remember, they haven't experienced the freedom you have. You've been living amongst friends, amongst people of the same mindsets yourselves. You'll be entering a world where people are repressed, emotionally crippled, and taught to hate. Tread carefully. But I'm confident that if you face the world with honesty and love, you will get the same in return.'Everyone gathers around the leavers in a circle to sing 'Auld Lang Syne'. We cry and hug, but I feel excited, looking forward to the life, with its pitfalls and dangers, that awaits me on the outside.
