One day I complained to a Christian Scientist friend that a young man I knew had difficulty finding suitable employment. I felt he was capable of better things than the job he held; but when I encouraged him to attend college and attain a higher education, he had said he was too tired to go to school after many hours of work.

My friend smiled and asked me, "If you think that a college education is such a good thing, why don't you obtain one yourself?" "How could I?" I asked her, pouring out reasons she already knew. I was employed all day in a factory. I had come from a Spanish-speaking country and my English was not very good. I felt it was too late for me because of my age.
