This is the first day of my life.

I have taught myself to sew, cook, fix plumbing, build furniture, … I can even pat myself on the back when necessary. All so I don’t have to ask anyone for anything. There’s nothing I need from anyone except for love and respect. And anyone who can’t give me those two things has no place in my life. H.F.

"It might be the most depressing thing you hear all day. According to the Pew Economic Mobility Project, children raised in high-income families who do not earn a college degree are 2.5 times more likely to end up wealthy than low-income students who graduate from college."

Poor students with degree worse off than rich students without one

i’m sure these numbers get even worse when you add race and disability to the mix.
