The children in my brothers grade are getting accepted to college. This one girl was so happy bc she got a $24,000 scholarship. Don’t get me wrong, that’s great but it just made me reflect and remember when I applied to my school and saw the pretty money package they gave me. As high school seniors we were encouraged to bring in our acceptance and scholarship letters to the guidance office so they could be published in the graduation pamphlet. I remember going into my guidance office and showing them my acceptance letter along with the package I got. The woman who saw my papers exclaimed, “Wow! That’s a lot of money!” I hadn’t realized it was so much in comparison until I saw that I was the high roller at graduation. Good times.
