A Little Graduation Magic

It's graduation time… and a victory cheer heard around the world is required! My awesome little brother from Big Brothers Big Sisters graduated from U.C. David California this week. He was the first in his entire family to make it past high school. This super shy kid, turned world dominator has interned for years in the State Senate, ran a fraternity, ran student government, swam, wrestled, acted, earned his Eagle Scout and much more. It's WILD! We have created a monster!

In all honestly, I'm so proud and honored to call him my brother. To me, "brother" has so many meanings from the obvious to "fellow man," "honorable person," "good neighbor" to "soldier" and much more. He accomplished his graduation goals with amazing determination. Today is an awesome day to get motivated and be in awe of those taking over everywhere!

Congrats Josh.
