Parker 39559I traveled to the Kansas City area last week for family celebrations.  My nephew Parker graduated from high school and received his Eagle Scout award.  It was a festive and grand time — a time to celebrate all his many accomplishments and to marvel at the young man he has become.  He’s had the support of his parents, grandparents, family members, and the extended community where he has lived.  He’s experienced the many ups and downs of a child, a teenager, and a young adult.  And he’s made his aunt so very proud of him.  Congratulations, Parker — I look forward to seeing what accomplishments and adventures are in your future.
