"Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become."

–Chris Hadfield

"Holder memorably referred to the U.S. as a ‘nation of cowards’ when it comes to race, but that could be a better state of affairs than the one we now have. It’s far more damning that this is a nation of self-declared racial innocents, blithely detached from its past and their prejudices."

This is absolutely wonderful.

The good news came seven months ago, but Irhad Sehovic still finds it hard to believe.

“Congratulations. I’m delighted to inform you…,” read the email from Harvard University.

All the hard work had paid off. Sehovic, 18, was headed to one of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world.

Next month, he will climb into the family van with his proud father serving as his road trip buddy and make the 18-hour journey from their home in south St. Louis County to Cambridge, Mass.

“This was the best news for me in my whole life,” said Ismet Sehovic, Irhad’s father.

It was what he and his wife, Jasmina, have been working for since they moved to St. Louis 14 years ago. They had been living in Germany, where they met in 1994 after fleeing from war in the former Yugoslavia, and where two of their three children were born.

The Sehovics were among the last group of thousands of Bosnian refugees resettled in St. Louis.
