I just read a web post called "Dear Austin - A Letter To My Son" by a man named David Perkins. If you'd like to read a beautiful, touching, and inspirational send off to college, you must read this letter. I wish I had had the words when my son left for school.
Moreover, I wish someone had written these words to me when I left for college. Do yourself a favor, and give it a look. It's lovely.
