A Realtor's Perspective on Reno – Lifestyle, Business, Family

A story that proves a point:

A story that proves a point: “It is our choices, far more than our abilities ….” Dumbledore

This link leads to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about a senior in high school who, by making the right choices, now has many outstanding opportunities.

He listened to his hard-working parents, did his homework, and kept his nose out of trouble.

That’s harder than it sounds sometimes.  Doing the right thing doesn’t always make a teen popular. It helps to be a quiet, physically mature person … He flew under the radar of many of his peers, and of his teachers.

Not calling attention to himself allowed him to do the right thing with fewer  hassles …

Where will he go from here?
