Do Something Remarkable

Tomorrow is Awards Day at Dora High. It's a fun day for the kids and Jilda and I plan to attend.
We'll give out our annual scholarship to a deserving student who plans to study the arts.
Athletes, high academic achievers, and those who plan to join the military usually get the big money. I proud of these kids because most work very hard to get where they are or they are willing (in the case of the military scholarships) to make a huge sacrifice in order to get an education.
Our scholarship is much smaller by comparison because we fund it out of our household budget. I also donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of my book "Remembering Big" to the effort.
I don't think it is the amount that matters. I think the kids are touched that we have enough faith in them to invest in their future.
I'm excited for our kids. I hope they all go out into this wacky world and do something remarkable.
