I was born during the Depression, when most people were poor. My father was a machinist and didn’t make much money to support a wife and four children. He never owned a new car and we lived in a three-bedroom shotgun house.
We didn’t have money for extras, but they found the money to send all four of us to a Catholic school, where I got a Christian education that has positively affected me for the rest of my life.
