You Can Be Anything You Want To Be

When I was in the third grade my teacher told her class that we could be anything that we wanted to be. As a child I pondered this and was already smart enough to know that was not the case for me and my classmates. We were from small rural America in a school that held 150 kids K-8th.  Our parents either worked the family farm or drove 25 miles to town for work. We road on the bus to school and back home. We eat home cooked meals, played in the yard barefoot, shot hoops in the barn loft and all the other things country boys and girls done. We were happy but content we would never go anywhere past our means. How crazy was this teacher that said we could one day be president. Looking back on it, in that time and day she was crazy. We could not be president or make a big name for our self in rural America. If we made the local paper, that went to about a thousand people we were big time. You don’t make president like that. Today though is a different day and time. Today you can tweet, blog, Facebook, email, text , Snapchat or whatever else they have come up with in the last 72 hours. There is roughly 3,750,000,000 people on the internet in the world. The time it takes for you to shower in the morning you can send out your opinion on anything and reach millions in seconds. Beats the heck out of the 1000 people the local paper reached when we were kids. So yes March 8, 2018 I believe as my teacher did that you can be anything you want to be. Maybe a future president is out in your yard running after their sibling right now. You can truly be anything you want to be.
