On June 5 Donald graduated from MIT with a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. This was a dream he pursued all through middle and high school, which goes to show that you can accomplish great things if you put your mind to it. There were over 2300 undergraduate and at least that number of graduate degrees awarded that day, yes it was a long ceremony. Commencement was given by Deval Patrick, the governor of Massachusetts. Donald said he fell asleep. Great...so much for our future in the hands of these kids.
As I was watching these young people fill the courtyard I felt a sense of pride and hope for our ability to work through the current crises surrounding us. There were some pretty smart people here and I'm sure most of them will contribute solutions to many of our problems. Let's hope they get to it quickly.
