Dreams are possible

This issue you dealt with today my mom and dads generation dealt with. They both came from Bosnia. My mom and her sister were taught to do their best in school so they could achieve their goals. My mom had all the levels in piano and was trained in voice. She had a chance to go to Juilliard School in NYC. In her time she knew it would be impossible so she got her double major in music and voice. She was married at 19 and had 3 daughters and a career that made my grandparents extremely proud.

Great BBC Podcast with wonderful range of subjects

Wonderful BBC podcast one a wide variety of subjects. I started listening in July so there are now 99 episodes to listen to. Have been downloading past episodes. Have enjoyed the episodes on walking The Walk, The Lie, Bural so far. They are all short 17 mins. Very educational and fun to listen to.

Unsubscribing

Episode on meritocracy was intellectually vacant. Most painful thing I have had to endure in a long time.
