Ah, college graduation

NBC did a nice piece on college graduates this year, and I've gotta tell you, I got a little misty. I know I've had a lot of discussions lately with friends and colleagues about the need for a college education, but there's something about that day when you're recognized that you did it.

For me, that day was filled with a wild set of emotions that ranged from relief that it was over, to anxiety about what was next, to pride, to an overwhelming feeling of hope. It's a unique time in your life when you have few constraints, limitless possibility and big dreams.

I think we need to do our best to hold on to all of that as we go forward into the world.
