Congratulations to our local high school graduates! Know this, graduates: If you live your life with these words from George Saunders on your heart, you’ll do just fine:

Do all the other things, the ambitious things—travel, get rich, get famous, innovate, lead, fall in love, make and lose fortunes…but as you do, to the extent that you can, err in the direction of kindness.
