"My dad used to tell me horror stories and I was like 'Man, you had it
rough. How'd you do it?' Given that and knowing my dad's high school education
was interrupted by civil war and they weren't sure they were going to eat the
next day, much less graduate. . . . I got an understanding of my
advantages. Here I was in the United States wondering what I was going to get
for Christmas. I had it easy."
