Wilson leads Seahawks past Rams

Russell Wilson added to his case for NFL Rookie of the Year, completing 15-of-19 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for the game-winning score to lift the Seattle Seahawks to a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Wilson's touchdown pass tied Peyton Manning's rookie record for passing touchdowns in a season with 26. Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 18 times for 100 yards, Golden Tate caught three passes for 105 yards and Michael Robinson hauled in three passes for 33 yards and score for the Seahawks (11-5), who locked up the NFC's fifth seed in the upcoming playoffs. Seattle will play the winner of Washington and Dallas next weekend in the Wild Card round. The Seahawks won 11 games for the first time since going 13-3 in 2005. Sam Bradford was 25-for-42 passing for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Rams (7-8-1), who haven't made the playoffs since 2004.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
