thanks for sharing that. And, until I had to look to make the argument, I never knew Babe Ruth grew up in reform school. So, thanks to ourr debate, I learned something.OK Oh Brother .....Here is another success story ...A Black Construction worker from Detroit who I worked with here in Erie man years ago. Semi literate,born & raised in the South & moved to Detroit to find some success in life.He fathered 8 children & funneled every penny he made back to Detroit to support & educate his children.
I worked side by side with him digging ditch`s laying pipe & sharing the workload. He came to be a very good friend & we got along well .I learned a lot from him about life in general.
His name was Willy Lufton, his success was never abandoning his children ....all 8 went on to college because he made sure the money was there for them, his duty as a father was something took seriously.
That was many years ago, Willy is gone now & I think of him often, he was my valued friend, I respected him,I miss him ....I will never forget him as long as I live.
