Two Joyous Days
Joyous Day #One
From the time she could hardly walk across the room, our daughter, Katy, had empathy for anything or anyone who was suffering. As a child her feelings were directed toward animals. As an adult, toward other humans.
It didn’t surprise me, then, that Katy has been hugely successful in her job at San Quentin. She works for a nonprofit called The Last Mile. The program teaches men how to program computers so they can get employment when they are released. The program is in seven states and so far, has zero recidivism.
Last week they had a graduation ceremony. Katy said the joy was palpable. In this photo she is second from the right shaking hands with a graduate.
Joyous Day #Two
Next Saturday Katy is getting married to a wonderful young man, Nathaniel Munger. They are being married at Nate’s grandfather’s home in Los Angeles. It will be a small ceremony with just immediate family. We are driving down on Thursday. I even bought a new suit for the occasion. Now I must find another occasion to wear it. A job interview? Going to the SF Symphony?
Full report with photos with my next blog.
