I Didn't Know That ...

... I graduated from college with newly elected Louisiana Congressman Anh "Joseph" Cao:
... After fleeing Vietnam as a child, Cao bounced around homes in several states with his sister and a brother before settling with an uncle in Houston. One of eight children, he did not see his mother or father, a former Vietnamese army officer who was imprisoned by Ho Chi Minh's government, until 1991. Cao graduated from Baylor University in 1990 and began studying to become a Jesuit priest. He went on several missions before attending law school in New Orleans...

Practically my whole family did. In fact, it's a trans-generational thing on both sides of my family.

Mom. Dad. (Mom and Dad met and got married while at Baylor.) Grandmother. Brother. Sister-in-law. Dozens of cousins (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and more distant). Several aunts and uncles, great-aunts and great-uncles. Various in-laws, etc.

In fact, the Hughes-Dillard alumni center at Baylor is named for my Dillard cousins, one of which - Diane - was Baylor Homecoming Queen and the Cotton Bowl Queen back in 1974.
