Given the recent heat generated from my last blog post, I wanted to clarify that I have only deep regard for those in my closest spheres who have chosen to grind themselves through post-graduate education.  I know that in many fields, whether you are relatively compensated or not, having a post-graduate degree is the requirement.  

And those that I am speaking of made sacrifices to their circumstances knowing that they may not make a lot of money…. but that somewhere…. in some moments….. for some individual…. the outcome of their sacrifices could be life changing for someone other than themselves.  And for that quality of character alone, I am proud to know them.
