>I just found this letter the other week, in amongst a box of greeting cards, old photos, and other things that had been forgotten over time.  It’s very short, but it tells such a story.

    >That letter really does tell a story. It actually reminds me of letters my husband gets from his grandmother…she never finished high school. I think it shows just how much education and our attitude towards it has changed. We don't have as many people leaving school in their early teens to get married and help out on the farm now, as was a common scenario in the early 20th century.
