This commentary will air a day after my son and eldest child, Jack, turns ten. The past few weeks I've been reflecting a great deal on what that means.

My first memory of going to the movies was with my dad. I was in kindergarten. We went to Highland Movie Theatre in St. Paul to see Star Wars. It was there I fell in love.

I spent last week in the house my great grandfather built when he immigrated to the United States from Sweden. He built the house on the land he farmed, the land my mother spent the majority of her life on and still lives on today. I spent the week with family and old friends, sharing stories, playing games, catching up and just enjoying being with each other.

Some of the earliest memories I have with my dad are related to baseball. Every Sunday after church, we would sit in the car waiting for my mom to finish getting "just a few things" at the store and listen to Herb Carneal's play-by-plays of the Minnesota Twins on WCCO radio.

I can't remember not reading books. I still have a photograph of me from Kindergarten, pigtail braids and my overalls with the mushroom on the pocket, surrounded by books because I won the book reading contest at school.

Last week was the 60th anniversary of the murder of a young boy, a murder that changed the world. And, the reason we even know about the murder, the reason we know his name, is because of his mother.
