Ten Years Gone.

May 5, 1996. 10 years ago today. A day that is more monumental than I would like to think. It was possibly more monumental than I cared to think at the time as well. It was a rite of passage... a change bound to come. 10 years ago on this day I graduated from Asbury College with a BA in Media Communications.
