Claire has her future mapped out, her finger on the pulse of adulthood and in the fall of 2016 will be heading into the world to join the Nursing Program at Kent State University. I have always had a fascination with all things medical and a deep respect for those who can sacrifice untold hours on and off the clock as well as their raw nerves to all the ups and downs a medical professional has to handle. And yeah, I know I only spent an hour with Claire, but this chick has the right stuff. Her intelligence is obvious and her wit and warmth come through nearly as instantly. She will have much to give and, much like me, will make everyone she meets see the world a little brighter for having spent some time with her.
