EVERYONE IN ALL MY CLASSES!
Heartiest congratulations to all my graduates. Go back and read the Blackboard post I created just for you a long time ago. You are my stars and heroes. If you could not get a Commencement, so what? You did what you were supposed to do. Things happened to and in the world that no one could control. Now, just go and live your life, and prosper.
And work to make this world a better place -- for All!
All my students and Advisees! Remember this:
CLASSES ARE OVER, EDUCATION IS NOT!
SEMESTER HAS ENDED, LIFE HAS NOT!
Let me say this: I love you all. You are no different to me than my own children and little brothers and sisters. And so many wonderful people I know in life. At times, just as annoying, and always just as precious and lovable. Of course, me being over 20 and you being over 15.
I am here for you for as long as you need me. Personal stuff? Academic issues? Call on me if and as you need me.
If you want me to run special classes for you on any subject that you need, and that I can handle, ask me and I will try to make it happen. I do not want anyone to pay me or otherwise compensate me for them.
In the meantime, stay well, and try to be happy. And remember, often, true happiness comes when people truly and genuinely, and without expecting anything in return, start caring for other people.
And for the world at large.
