    November 16, 2015

    Many social trends are affected by our youth who were born into an age with computers, cell phones, and social media as methods of communication. In an effort to recognize when there is a shift in social norms, as well as to forward the School's vision of creating men of character, I share the following thought: When did we hit the tipping point for the expression of gratitude to change from “You’re welcome” to “No problem,” and is this really no problem?
