Education ... It Takes a Village

I had not been to a college graduation in many years, so I didn't know
that some of the graduates decorate their mortar boards.
Imagine my delight (and misty eyes) when I saw how my son had decorated his.
The speaker that day encouraged the grads to thank all the folks
who had helped and supported them along the way ...
teachers, family, mentors, and friends.
My son's proud moment was more than enough thanks for me!
