So many times in our busy lives we move from one thing to the next so quickly without stopping to smell the roses, especially in this dawn of technological breakthrough. In 3 minutes, you can check email, text a friend, update your status and write on your blog, all while waiting for the light to change so you can cross the street.
I would like to remind you to make time to acknowledge the people who got you where you are. It didn't happen magically, we didn't just arrive at a place, we were brought their through community, through generosity, belief, support and above all LOVE.
So today I salute a professor of mine whom I had the great opportunity and privilege to learn from. He is a masterful painter, he can draw superbly and is above all a sterling individual.
