A Very Special Graduation
Years ago when my kids were very young, I learned that my school had a tradition that allowed any of the faculty, staff or administrators to present the diploma to their son or daughter at commencement if their child was graduating. I thought it would be the coolest thing in the world to do so. That day finally came. The feeling: great!
Several of my colleagues told me that they were crying. Although I thought I would be, I wasn't. I guess I was too mesmerized in seeing something I had dreamed about many years ago come true.
