Re: “Delta grandmothers going back to school,” The Leader, Dec. 20.
That is a refreshing story. It stokes one’s soul. The quest for knowledge knows no boundaries. People climb mountains. The two grandmas are climbing their own mountains. What a wonderful feeling they must have on being able to write. Congratulations to them. It opens new vistas when you can read and write.
Also thanks to your photographer. The picture catches the mood, focus and I think, a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence of both grandmas.
I couldn’t help but notice that Surinder Dhillon, in the foreground, is left-handed. It reminds me of old times back home when lefties were frowned upon. The left hand was even spanked to get you to use the right hand.
It is hardly of any consequence now. Again, congratulations and best wishes to them.
