Shepherd Smith--in Lebanon--thinking of choir
Dr. Jordan just forwarded me a message he received from Shepherd Smith who is currently in Lebanon with Fox News.
I've asked Dr. Jordan to ask Shepherd if I can reprint his email here . . . it is a somewhat profound reminder of where life can take you.
I hope he lets me . . .
I've told you before about Shepherd . . . he was the guy with all the funny comments that sat directly behind me in the Bass 2 section. I still marvel at his ascent to network news and I'm proud as heck to have known him in college.
He's thinking of his choir experiences while he's in Lebanon . . . what an impact Dr. Jordan had on him.
I've been trying to look back at Shepherd with my "teacher eyes." He had a "spark" in him that was undeniable and I always smile when I hear his characteristic wit and commentary on life, politics, and the human condition.
Godspeed, Shepherd. Get back home safely. And let's visit Dubrovnik again one day.
