I was flooded with memories when listening to your education show. Being born in 1943 to a traditional Italian family, I was always told that "education was wasted on a girl."

Seventeen years after beginning college I earned my masters in social work. Looking back on my journey from the vantage point of retirement, I see much value in my path. A sense of self worth comes from living a fulfilled life, whichever path one chooses to take.
