A Visit to Princeton

Slice of Life2

I am participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to the co-authors of              Two Writing Teachers for creating this  supportive community.

We live only about an hour from Princeton, NJ, yet my husband and I were commenting on the fact that until yesterday, we had never been on the Princeton campus. My niece is a freshman at Princeton this year, so a visit was in order. The campus is as beautiful as we expected it, despite the absence of colors. But we could imagine the promise of spring in the tall trees and manicured gardens. As we walked, we could almost hear the stately buildings whisper words from alumni such as Woodrow Wilson, JFK, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sonia Sotomayor, and Michelle Obama.

As beautiful as the campus is, the best part of the day was spending time with Courtney. Her studies are in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She loves the law and is a member of the Mock Trial Team (which just placed second in the National Tournament). She, and others like her, hold the promise of the future. And from my standpoint yesterday, it looks very bright.

Thanks, Courtney. We’re so proud of you!
