As students are preparing to graduate, let’s try to remember that the physical things we create and accumulate are always temporary and will eventually cease to be – but that the impacts we have on the lives and on the world around us are permanent. By being forces for positive change in the world around us, we create a legacy that can’t be destroyed.
