Will reminds me of a Norman Rockwell Painting -- the painting of the little boy showing all his ancestors. Will's name ends in V - he is the great-grandson (or perhaps, great, great) of one of the founders of the Mayo Clinic; his grandmothers on one side were members of the DAR; on the other the great-grandparents were Russian emigrants. And while his great ("and perhaps great-great") grandfathers were doctors; this generation produced a mother who is a doctor and a lawyer-father. To me he embodies America.
