My grandfather who raised me passed away. Being black and poor and born in the 20s, he couldn't become an engineer like he dreamed of. I just got accepted into engineering school. : TwoXChromosomes: "He may have lived through a lot of terrible things (and trust me he had the stories to prove it) but he had one core teaching he imparted on us and it goes as follows: "I've got my mind to myself. I'm free in that, and no one can make me a prisoner because I, and I alone, have my mind."
