it's hard to believe that just a little over four years ago we opened that fat envelope welcoming the girl to the university of michigan and offering her a four-year full-ride. i thought i was proud of her then, but today?

this weekend was exhausting, running around campus to the various receptions and celebrations on friday night. but in the midst of all the uncertainty of these extraordinary times, it was so very deeply moving to watch and listen to the celebration of these students who have already persevered and overcome, in a lot of cases, significant obstacles and who face challenges yet unseen.

and i can't tell you how deeply, incredibly moved i was today, when i sat under the sun and blue sky with 40,000 other proud parents and families in the big house, and watched my little girl graduate.

hail to the victors, indeed.
