As I walked through the quiet Luther campus early this morning with classmate Sue (Hammond) Haemker and other friends, I enjoyed the beauty in the stillness of the day. No traffic or walkers to distract from reveling in the vibrance of the Library Lawn and the flowers that so magnificently showcase the campus. I hope that some of you had a chance to visit campus this summer, perhaps bringing a young relative along to give them a taste of Luther. The morning stillness will soon be replaced by athletes returning for pre-season practices. Not long after that, we’ll see the faces of freshmen both concerned and excited about the new adventure they are beginning. Memories of our freshman days are foggy after 48 years!
