On Tuesday night, I joined hundreds of other parents and family members who crowded into the field house at St. Joseph's University to witness the graduation of the Lower Merion High School Class of 2011. My son Jason, the school's Sargeant-at-Arms, was the first student to march down the aisle on his side of the arena. Behind him, hundreds of other graduates, whose parents were probably feeling many of the same emotions I was.
