My “Final Footnote” for Aggie Catholics

Simcha Fisher - published on 08/12/13

Marcel LeJeune had a neat idea:

Many of you probably know about a popular series of lectures on college campuses called “The Last Lecture Series”. Professors (and others) are asked to give a lecture to students as if it were the last presentation they are able to give during their life. Building on this idea – I asked a number of Catholic authors, bloggers, and speakers to answer the following question in 500 words or less: “What do you think is the most important thing you could tell college students if you had one last blog post to do it?” 

My contribution, “Inch Your Way to the Stars” is up today.  Check it out!  I’m looking forward to the rest of the series!
