As an incoming freshman, tuition costs, book fees, and the myriad other expenses scared me. I was so focused on the cost of going to school that I spent no time considering the benefits. Mom and Dad’s intervention began with an explanation of the opportunities. My parents told me college was the best place to discover new ideas, face both diversity and adversity, and develop as a person. Looking back, I can now confirm these truths. I can also say, as a bonus, sometimes the education is also meaningful.
God's Message for World Peace delivered to me:
“Leave all the religions of the world and come to my abode where there is Peace and happiness”
