    May be a bit, not much to say. Maybe someday. For once I am without words.

    If you think it's much better up here, you'll be just as disappointed.

    My farming friend Ismael was by last week. He is going to graduate at 16, he is a very intelligent kid. He was asking me thing about schooling and such, guess looking some advice. Told him his first decision has to be if he stays in his Country. Don't see any jobs here unless he becomes a Dr, maybe in MGA he could find a decent job.

    I have known this kid over half his life, he has great potential, but the sad thing is he may be better off to plant a few acres of cassava then he is if he goes to MGA to work in a call center.

    Here on the Coast most are living hand to mouth, few people with money, very few middle class.

    There is that scholarship for the people on the DAC if they make good enough grades in HS and speak passably well in English that hardly any qualify for from there to fill the quota given to the area... Miskito Alan told me about it. Back then it was worth some 50K a year to an American School... Can't remember the name of it though..

    I am gone do some digging, if you say he would meet the requirements or possably could. Alan said they normaly have something like 10 openings for this USA education and only 1 or 2 evah have made the grades for it.. So it is quite exclusive.. And if he wins the prize... The US Educated document, he will be worlds ahead of even the best of the Leion crowd... Paaapaaa Talk....

    "US Educated." how impressive, it means he's qualified to be cannon fodder for the corporate world, a well behaved zombie who'll never make waves, rock the boat, or threaten the status quo. I.e., a union member or a Democrat voter.

    Teach him the virtues of love, liberty, laughter, and hope, and he'll find his way wherever he is.

    Life goes on with, or without us.

    Being a farmer is not a crime. A person could be a farmer and somehow become a famous writer.

    Sorry about the avocados. Sometimes you just have to take extra measures than to tempt someone that is poor and hungry.

    He is top of his class so surely he would qaulify, he speaks proper english. BICU in Bluefields has a deal like that. He has another year or so.

    This guy could provide guidance and help.

    He "escaped" Little Corn, got US degrees and lives in Miami.

    A very good man.

    I don't want to be the person to tell a kid to leave his land and his people. My thinking, that is the problem, those that can leave do.

    But you left your land and people. He can see how that worked out for you, and decide for himself.

    I did not mean to imply that he should leave his land and people, except to get the best possible education and broad experiences.

    Theogene may be able to help him or at least provide guidance.

    Also leaving your land and people to gain experience on how to do things better and return is a choice that could be of interest to him.

    It is not a given that more schooling automatically equals wealth and power "somewhere else" - Many of the worlds woes are caused buy the best and brightest leaving their home for shiny coins and hollow acquaintances in some far off place..
