For Changes and Challenges
By Paul Gomez
Like many other people, my favorite season is autumn. This is not just because my birthday falls near the beginning of the equinox, but also because the air is crisp. In some parts of the country, the leaves begin to burn into an explosive palette, constellations shift in the night sky while the days die early, and pumpkin spice intoxicates the senses. Life is starting to change – again.

The lazy days of summer are coming to an end. Gone are the family reunions, vacations at the beach, and visiting favorite amusement parks. For some the summer marked first-time-sleep away camp adventures, sports tournaments, and robotic competitions. It is still hot outside, but August and early September mark the beginning of school.
