Here's to the future...

In Dallas for the elementary school graduation (completion of 5th grade) of an incredible step-grandson, Joe. It has been years (give or take five decades) since I left 5th and it seems there is a much greater effort to stress character and social awareness, sincerity and kindness, good citizenship and 'the golden rule' than I remember being taught.

"Don't be dumb enough to pick on anybody bigger than you," is kind of what I remember... and, "If you must pick your nose... " oh, nevermind.

As a parent of grade-schoolers years back, I always appreciate the opportunity to be in a school setting today and see all these neat young people running around... our future.
