Today seems like the right day to remember two things:
The freedom to pursue a higher education at all is a gift that’s easy to take for granted.
That freedom also comes with a responsibility to value and appreciate the gift.
The opportunity to spend four years learning, growing, discovering your passions, having fun and preparing for a happy, successful life as an adult is a priceless one, but it will pass you by if you don’t do your part to extract the value. That’s a big responsibly, but one that’s worthy of the work and expense that propel your education.
You honor the freedom when you invite the responsibility.
