One of the things I loved about elementary school was, no surprise, recess. I would race to the swings and enjoy the ride until the bell rang. The higher I would swing the more I could see of the historic church’s steeple that was hidden by some large sycamores. As a 4th grader I was beyond my years when it came to thinking about the grand scheme of life. One day while swinging I made the decision to do something no one in my family had ever done before; go to college. I dreamed of what college life would be and the opportunities afforded as a result. I made the decision and I never looked back. As Henry Ford said, “..be quick to make a decision and slow to change it.” I enjoyed college and earned a degree but one of my favorite memories, still, is of that day on the swing when I decided to dream the impossible and never look back. What is your dream?
