Today is Ash Wednesday in Jamaica. We salute Bernie Sander's victory. Did I hear free education? I like the political revolution. Anytime a politician promises education for all taxing Wall Street, I am all ears. Too many students turned away from a decent education for lack of funds.
I salute Hakeem Angulu for his victorious acceptances that came against all odds. We know he was desperately sought after when he got the Principal's award at Choate Rosemary in 11 th grade, an award only granted in 12th grade. He joined the choir, the debate team, aided the poor who lived off Mexico's dumpsters, assisted the youths in the democratic campaign process....the list would fill pages of any ambitious student's resume.
Congrats, Hakeem, you made MIT, Yale and Harvard in one fell swoop. And the list of future acceptances appear not to be flagging. Kudos.....
