It's Never Too Late to Move Forward

My mother took ill and brought me to Washington DC and then left me to take care of myself, and I had a fear of going to school because I was fearful of my underage, that the school system would lock me up. Mind you at the time I was only 16, and didn’t want to go to jail.

So over the years, I was able to find work and learn to keep my mouth closed and learn the job well, from security to sales, and I made more money than a person working as lawyer, and I took care of our three daughters over thirty years.

Then it dawned on me that our daughters had passed me in education. And before I pass on, I would like to complete this and go to college. Time is not on my side any more. This will allow me to go the next step in my life.
