I leave now for the graduation of my youngest daughter from college. To quote from something, "My heart soars like an eagle." Either Hoffman or Pacino. He was an Indian.
Anyway, when I graduated they listed my name in the graduation program as having graduated with honors. Although this was not an accurate assessment of my actual academic standing, my parents were so pleased that I let a sleeping dog lie.
My daughter graduates with a 3.46--4 hundredths of a point shy of honors status, and about a solid point higher than her dad. She does however occupy a dominating spot on my honors list.
To repeat: My heart soars like an eagle.
