"John Adams was a farmer, Abraham Lincoln was a small town lawyer, Plato, Socrates were teachers, Jesus was a carpenter…to equate judgment and wisdom with occupation is, at best, insulting."
A lesson in being humble is important. My father is a auto mechanic with a high school education, but also one of the smartest people I know. My mother is a case worker in a hospital and has been a nurse in some way, shape or form her entire career. My grandfather was a US Steel worker and my grandmother sold insurance. None of these professions are flashy or particularly important, but they are all essential to running this country.
