    I hope this doesn't sound patronizing because it certainly isn't meant that way at all, but I am so proud of you!

    I have every confidence you will do great. I know how much you will value the experience and that you will truly take advantage of everything available to you.

    We did plan for and expect our son to go to college ( he's a freshman) and he's at a great place that has proved to be a perfect match for him. But he knows, and thankfully appreciates, the commitment we've made to have him there. He sees students who were smart enough to get in,  but who don't appreciate that college is not an opportunity that's available to everyone, and certainly not as easily financially available as it is to some of them.

    As parents, we are glad to be able to send him but also very glad that he takes this opportunity to heart.

    You should definitely celebrate your accomplishments!! You are a force in this world!

    We view "The Handmaid's Tale" as cautionary. The GOP views it as an instruction book.
