To lighten up a bit, here’s my high school graduation picture and top award from Chicago Vocational High School, when I lived at Euclid Avenue, 5 blocks from Michelle Obama on the same street. She never had to overcome the obstacles I did. I also went from failure in first grade, where I couldn’t attend schools in freezing Chicago because I had no shoes, to graduating with Straight A’s! Michelle’s achievements were given to her on a silver platter in the USA. Every obstacle imaginable was thrown in my path and in my face. But, I thank God, the worse is behind me, I hope.
