Wisdom lost on youth

Bill Gates Sr (the dad of the rich guy) came to the PLU campus last week, and while 20-something students grilled him about his book, mostly asking looong drawn out questions about what should they do to live a passionate life (I was more interested in BG as a kid), I could tell that he the in some cases they were missing the point of his book "Showing up for Life".

He said again and again that raising a family and spending time with your kids is probably the most important thing you can do with your time. But since none of his questioners, I was the reporter there, had kids, this went right over their heads.

But in seeing Jennifer dive headlong into being 16, I can vouch for Bill Sr's wisdom. It is the most important thing you will do.

The guy also has a Facebook page, check in out!
