It’s the end of the school year and graduation time for many. We get to hear about the achievement of important milestones like graduations or even just moving forward to different grades and schools. Some are embarking on new careers with passion and excitement as they now get to put to work that which they have learned over the course of their studies. In my office, two highly qualified interns, Oliver and Spencer, began their internship this week and will spend the next two months learning about of our business. From past experience, I know that we will learn a lot from them, too. Hearing about the amazing accomplishments of so many younger people gives me a sense of optimism that we can overcome the challenges we are facing both here at home and globally.
When I think about the journeys on which many are embarking and the excitement and passion that they bring to their efforts, I’m reminded of a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson “do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” It’s probably the hope of every parent that their children can forge their own paths toward a life filled with meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.
Take care and stay safe.
