Hi all my name is J Griff3n and today i googled \”mom did not finish highschool\” and came aacross this blog… Well my mom had my brother at the age of 17; she is from Mississippi and ALL my family is from there. Today i am 23 years old transferring into a four year university. My brother is exactly 5 years minus one day older than me and my sister is 9 years younger than I. Today i looked at my brother andd got so damn sad because he did not finish high school but he did get his ged. He did not attend college and it is really heart breaking to me. I sit here literally having tears in my eyes saying my mom did not only even finish high school. She was not able to live freely because of us. I pray that i can help her in the future. Even though engineering does not guarantee anything, it is a start. It breaks my heart knowing only person my mom has is her. I feel so terrible because highschool was not the best and my grades were not either; I don\’t know man… It is depressing 100{53c6eff5ce19621f7316832cfedf08caab022021f1679c62c3f44b8900ceaf72}… Like i think about were my mom comes from… She comes from NOTHING my whole family does: being black in mississippi back in the day was you all know terrible….sometimes i ask why me? But no handouts are given… Education is important.
