Last year it was Hurricane Sandy. This year it is Hurricane Common Application. Both have prompted many colleges to push back some early deadlines, yet thankfully in this case no lives or homes have been lost or irreparably damaged.
We all have challenges on the journey of life. Some are as minor as a bug on a windshield. Others come like an F5 tornado. And through it all, we keep growing. But whether the sun shines or we are facing a hurricane, it really is all about the journey.
