Here's a post from the 30,000 foot level (literally). I'm returning home from my son's graduation from University of Chicago Law School. It's a pretty amazing experience to attend a second law school graduation with your first child--the first time I was the graduate and he was in preschool; this second time 'round he is the one wearing the hood and I am just the mom--wow. Words just don't do it justice.
The keynote speaker yesterday for the U Chi law grads was Daniel Doctoroff, he had some fine words for these grads. They are equally compelling for the parents; indeed for anyone seeking to make a difference. I suppose I am paraphrasing a bit, but his message is worth repeating: Don't be afraid to fail. Take some chances. With the blessing of a legal education, go out there and find the talent that makes you great.
Best of luck to you all.
