High School Graduation!

Spent a very pleasant evening cheering for my son and his classmates. It's fun when they announce the graduate's plans for next year -- everything ranging from architect to plumber -- and to imagine these kids, many of whom we've known for years, going out into the world.

The principal, in her speech, quoted from a 12th-century writer who said that if you try to change the world, you will eventually realize you can't; you can only change yourself. But by changing yourself, you can change the world.

The world needs a lot of changing right now. This graduating class is going to face challenges we can't even imagine. They will need ingenuity, creativity, courage, and determination. From what I saw last night, I think they have a fighting chance.

Here he is, dressed in his best.
