Closing thoughts, of sorts

I'm finding it hard to come up with a way to round things out this semester, to come to any kind of closure with this class. I'm not sure if I managed to convey this, but I'm enormously proud of all of you, of what you accomplished this semester, and of the bravery with which you took it on. I know this was uncharted territory for the majority of you, and I know you must all have had moments (perhaps still today!) of wondering what the heck you'd gotten yourselves into. And I know that there were a lot of times (perhaps still today!) when you'd have liked more input from me, more of a reassuring sense that we had a clear destination, that I knew how to get there, and that you were all well on track.


I leave you all with the best, most disturbing, and simple music video of the year. Made by an artist not so much older than ourselves. And the words of Hunter S Thompson: "Sometimes the energies of a generation come together in a long fine flash."
