Here's a story from: Port Orford, OR (US)

Added: Monday, April 4th, 2011

In 19777 I was a single Mom, working, and going to school part time at PCC. For a short time I was on welfare and unemployment. But with the help and support of faculty and students, I was able to earn my Associates degree in Computer Programming and went from an insecure welfare Mom to a confident person earning up to $120K a year. I've retired at the coast and am enjoying my early retirement, tsunamis excluded. I hope everyone can take the opportunities available. I know it's not easy, I lost family time, which I regret, but our lives were made better in the long run. -Sherry
