Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts recently delivered the commencement address at his son’s ninth-grade graduation. And he surprised students with his message, saying, “I hope you will be treated unfairly, so that you will come to know the value of justice. I hope that you will suffer betrayal because that will teach you the importance of loyalty.”

Justice Roberts also recited the poem Forever Young, written by Bob Dylan for his son, Jesse. It is also a poem that holds significant meaning for me, in recalling a pact I made with my best friend many years ago, to remain forever young in our thinking. Forever Young also express what I have always wished for my daughter, Amy, and for those in my life who are important to me. It is the kind of thinking that I strive to reflect in the pages of Buffalo Healthy Living Magazine every month.

Forever Young ~ by Bob Dylan
May God bless you and keep you always. May your wishes all come true. May you always do for others, and let others do for you. May you build a ladder to the stars, and climb on every rung, and may you stay forever young.
May you grow up to be righteous. May you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth, and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong, and may you stay forever young.
May your hands always be busy. May your feet always be swift. May you have a strong foundation when the winds of changes shift. May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung, and may you stay forever young

Have a wonderful August!
