You can even be President of the United States!

Back when I was a kid… I remember people, teachers, relatives, clergy etc… constantly telling us. “You can be anything you want to be…You can even be President of the United States!” I’m not sure they believed what they were telling us, but I am sure they wanted us to believe it. They wanted us to aspire to such greatness…..To hope and believe that we could make a difference. Hell, I told my daughter the same thing more than a few times.

Well I have to tell you I never aspired to be president. It was around 2nd grade when they told us how much he makes in salary and I decided it wasn’t enough…lol.

But it’s nice to know that even if they didn’t believe it and I was only half hearted in my belief… It was true!! Who would have thought?
