So a young man in Pennsylvania was in a serious car accident just before his high school graduation. He was placed in a medically induced coma in order to reduce the chance of damage to his brain from his head injuries. He came out of the coma fine and is on the mend, but as his mom said, one of the first things he pointed out when he woke up and learned the date was that he had missed graduation.

So his principal and family got together and organized a commencement for him. And they managed to get about half his graduating class to put their robes and hats back on, march in to "Pomp and Circumstance" and applaud when they read the young man's name. And then they filed out; they had done all of this for him to be able to walk the stage when his name was called, receive his diploma and join them for the cap-tossing.

Some days I like the world.
