Have you ever missed the first day of school?
Our first day of school is this Wednesday. A few weeks ago a family member began showing signs of serious illness -- serious enough that I wondered if I would miss the first day of school.
In twenty-two years, I have missed only two: my father's death and a case of intense food poisoning. Each of those days, I had an intern that I had prepared who could help cover. Each of those days I had my own first day of school where I set the tone for the year.
