A 70-Year Old First Grader

05 April 2008 0 comments

I saw on the news about this gentleman who is seventy-years old and is in First grade. His name is Alfred Williams from Kansas City, Oklahoma. He never got the chance to go to school because he worked on the fields to help his family.
He said that he promised his mother that he will go to school and get an education. That time has come and he is now in first grade and is learning to read.

This is one of those stories that leaves you feeling good. It goes to show that you are never too old to study. No matter what your circumstances are, if you have a yearn to learn, it is never too late to start.
