Mitch McConnell in the United States Capitol in December. Credit Credit Damon Winter/The New York Times Supported by ByCharles Homans Jan. 22, 2019 At sunrise, there it was: a red-tailed hawk, its gyre widening over the United States Capitol building in the Creamsicle-colored light, like the world’s least subtle literary reference. It was still there by midafternoon, drifting on the thermals over the mostly depopulated National Mall, wheeling occasionally past the window in the hallway outside the office where the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, sat on the 20th day of what would soon become the longest government shutdown in American history.

Schools were asked to send us the names of their high achievers — however they define them. Some schools use the “valedictorian” and “salutatorian” distinctions. Others designate “highest honors” or degrees of “cum laude” or a percentage of the senior class. Schools submitting 10 names or fewer are invited to ask their students for an inspirational quote, and as ever, students cited words from a range of historic and contemporary writers, musicians and artists, political figures, scientists and celebrities. One pulled inspiration from the 1800s, with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s advice to “Finish each day and be done with it, you have done what you could. …Tomorrow is a new day, begin it well and with too high … [Read more...] about Top graduates 2018: High achievers and words that inspired them
