There’s an anniversary in our family this week that I imagine we’ve forgotten about because we’ve been so busy. I didn’t, however, although for a moment I forgot exactly which day it occurred. For sure, though, it was in the month of May. And definitely for sure, it occurred 20 years ago today (May 16, 1999). This was the day that the older of my two sisters graduated from college.
Sis has been in the health care world for her entire professional life, and during the 1990s she went for further schooling, starting out at UW—Green Bay for a couple of semesters before transferring to UW—Madison. And 20 years ago, our entire family spent the weekend herein Madison, where we all saw Sis walk up to that stage, grab that diploma, and turn her tassel from right to left.
