Dear Graduates:
I so wish we could gather in person. You are all so deserving. I’ve had the great privilege of knowing many of you, and you have made my life richer, and all of you have taught me something I didn’t even know I needed to know! Graduation is always a very exciting (and sometimes fraught) occasion, and certainly this year the stakes are even higher. Despite all the obstacles you acquitted yourselves, and will now move to the next level of the adventure. Nothing is certain, except that you have all the skills to navigate these interesting times. I am so proud of you all. I hope you will keep in touch. I wish you all the best. Remember to breathe when things get anxious. Some of you will know what I mean when I say “You’re not on fire!”. Virtual hugs to all!
