    Even after all these years of covering commencements, the strains of Pomp and Circumstance inspire me with optimism. After all, I have high hopes for this year’s group of newly minted graduates.

    We all have stakes in how well these graduates do. They are the men and women who will go to college, join the military or head into the work force.

    I cannot emphasize enough the impact that foster parents have on the lives of children.
