He could fix anything and was just a natural problem solver. I was the only child born from my mother and father. My father went on to have three more…

Most people graduate high school, but not everyone does. Most are high school dropouts. That means if they dropped out of high school, they would never get their driver’s license. They would have to live somewhere where they had a bike, someone else to ride with, a bus, or you are in walking distance of everything. …

I don’t think that you should have a high school diploma before you get your driver’s because when kids turn sixteen they want to start doing things for themselves, and they don’t want their parents driving them around when the 20…
