To My Sister on Her Graduation from Law School
You did it! You made it through law school. And, as your family and friends watched with pride, you not only survived - you thrived in your three years at Wake Forest.
I am so in awe of everything you've accomplished since you graduated from high school. As we've gotten closer in the last decade, I've become more aware of how much thought you put into every life change: you consider all of your options, weigh the pros and cons of each, and wait to move until you're confident in your choice and your ability to see it though. Your decision to get your JD and your matriculation at one of the country's top law schools illustrated this, and I know you got everything possible out of the experience because of how much you put into it.
While you're not sure yet what the path forward holds, I am so glad to have you in DC through the summer (at least!) and know that your next steps will be as carefully considered and well-suited as those that came before. Congratulations, SarahRemESQ - onwards and upwards!
With lots of love,
