I’ve turned into one of those people.
The ones who say “I remember when you were this high!” to nieces and nephews. Who says, “I remember when you were a student!”
I said that a lot this issue, reading John Aurelio’s article about young alumni who are just striking out on their own as physicians—or not. It’s fun to see where life has taken them. For some, it’s not how they planned. But for all, the desire to serve others is an immutable force. They’re all living some version of that truth.
