Change the world, graduates

May 10, 2014 - Paul Giannamore
As I sit with The Boss (at Home) watching the Franciscan University of Steubenville’s graduation ceremony (thanks to my college and lifelong professor/advisor Dr. James Coyle), I have a bunch of thoughts.

We’re very excited to see our future daughter-in-law get the degree she worked so hard to earn. Congratulations Taylor.

And a few more thoughts:

1. I wish I was as young as all these kids and so filled again with that fire when you just know you’re going to change the world and achieve everything, in the exact order you laid out in your mind.

2. I really miss hanging out with Danny G. and Vince A. and Marty K., becase we would have made a formidable business had we kept forces together as we did all those years in political science. We knew how each others’ minds worked back then. Never got that again with any group of co-workers ever. A person here and there, but never four guys at once.

3. I really, really miss my cousin Rick. A lot.

4. I wish now, 30 years after graduation this very day, that I had the ability, or the will, to sit in a classroom and figure our where all that brainpower I think I once had went as I made my way through life.

May all those kids getting their degrees at FUS and elsewhere find their niche, excel at it and change the world, or at least their corner of it.

Thanks for the mention, Paul. I'm glad you and The Boss could share Graduation with us. And I thank you for truly being a lifelong learner. You never stop!
