My Grandmother, wanted to go to school.

She told me this.

She couldn't.

She was a woman of color.

She taught herself to read and write.

Her name was Cynthia.

She loved books

She loved the arts.

Her dream, was to see her children , her daughters go to school.

It was her granddaughters that did.

It was her great grandaughters that did.

My maternal grandmother could only go to school sporadically because she was always being pulled out to help when her mother delivered another baby. She had 10.

My paternal grandmother was married at 15 and had her first baby by the time she was 16. She had a total of 10.

Thanks for the reminder of how far women have come. Not only can we become educated now, we have access to birth control.

livinginablender, this is the nicest thing anybody has done for me in a while. I want to be a lawyer, and I am going to be a lawyer! For myself and for my little girl!
