At Viewpoint School, we have “5Up,” a lunchtime series of short talks by members of the school community–students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and friends.  I gave one in February, and it recently went up on the school’s YouTube channel.  Because I speak about a friend from high school, a lot of people from McDonogh School have viewed it.  That makes me happy, but in my mind the target audience is students who are in high school now.  My hope is that they will approach their daily lives with care for how their words and deeds will be remembered many years from now–and with certainty that some of what they do and say will be remembered.  (Just not necessarily the parts they expect.)
