He worked three jobs to support his family and pay for his OWN education. He didn't have mommy and daddy pay it for him. (And his parents wouldn't have paid it anyway. His dad died when he was very young and his mom remarried, and his step dad sent him away to live with several different aunts. So he had no one to depend on but himself) Nor did the government pay for his education or for his family to eat either. He ended up working as one of the TOP engineers in the NASA program during the 60s and early 70s. So all that hard work and dedication paid off.
yes yes yes. It's GD respectable. It's wonderful. It kept him off the government dole. It's everything you're saying and then some.
And not. Because you can't seem see why HAVING to work three jobs to make ends meet is not ok. It's ridiculous.
