We are Christopher, and I think you and her dad have done a wonderful job of it….

Living in the South, in an area that is 75% African American, I can honestly hear what you are saying about the struggles a black woman has without a higher education, or marketable skill at minimum… The lady who has a booth next to ours is a black woman who has worked hard to own her own business, and in her words, become a roll model to many young women to break the stereo type that befalls these young ladies in the deep South…

Would it have been easier if he were a fellow student? I was thinking about that….I mean, I know she isn’t my child… but I heard the exasperation in your writing, and she became “our child ” LOL… and I thought, ” I would feel a lot better if he were in college”….

Just call me Mama 🙂
