"Beth, you've got to meet this kid." My father said to me. "He's really something."
I had no idea, rolling my eyes at the notion of a 20-year old political groupie, that Chris would become one of the most important people in my life, a friend in the truest sense of the word who has shared with me in every triumph, every heartbreak and everything in-between for the last seven years.
And so while this post isn't particularly anecdotal or funny or interesting to anyone who doesn't know Hastings and thus care that today, he graduated from law school, it is profoundly important for me to say: Chris Fadeff, you are one of the best friends I've ever known. I love you and I'm proud of you in ways I will never be fully able to express. Congratulations.
