There is little in this world more important than a good education. However, that little piece of paper, which represents the most basic level of standard education, the high school diploma, doesn’t just stand for knowledge. It stands for achievement, perseverance, and opportunity. Not attaining a high school diploma does not have to be a lifelong obstacle. The GED (General Educational Development) test was created to give individuals a way to earn the equivalent of a high school diploma, thereby providing greater possibilities for themselves in job and income improvement, and opportunities for higher education and military service. Starting in 2014, GED testing goes completely online, which may be more difficult for some. So, make it your 2013 resolution to achieve this vital goal. We have a way for you to do this at the library:

Last October, popular rapper Drake caused a stir for all the right reasons. Think getting your GED is no big deal? Drake, and the 36,000 people who retweeted his post, might disagree! Even with all he's accomplished as an actor and rapper, he wasn't satisfied without his diploma. Now he's got the kind of joy that money can't buy; it took him a long time to earn his education and achieve that goal, but he did it!
