Face It

Poverty, while a cause of some educational woes, is something that can be overcome, if the desire is there.  Just look at the number of people who grew up poor, worked days and went to school at night.  Things were hard but there was something inside them that made them persevere and succeed. 

Let's face it.  Some people don't want to learn or can't.  Education is not for everyone.

Ain't that the truth!?

My mother-in-law, God bless her, raised NINE children on her own, working during the day to feed them and keep a roof over their heads, and then put herself through nursing school at night. She's my hero!
