Came in email ....... seems to be a lot of truth in that.
More concisely brings to mind the Mexican couple featured on 20/20 last Friday who came to the US about 20 years ago and supported their children by recycling from garbage/dumpsters. They sent one son through college, have a daughter employed in management and another son in college.
They have not been on public assistance and have attained US citizenship. They're still working .... going through garbage in dumpsters for recyclables. I bow to their courage, tenacity and character to bring it about themselves through a means no one else wanted to use.
