And there you stand taking your place in the tapestry. Living the tradition that millions over time have cherished and passed on. How very fortunate to be a Buckeye.
Standing there looking at it, you don't fully appreciate it. But you sense a moment, you are defined. And you spend the balance of your life trying to share that moment and return to it.
