Thanks to all of you.
My parents didn't have a degree and my mother was very intelligent and smart in raising a family. I think my grandmother, who was born in 1888, only had a 3rd grade education and I remember when growing up she seemed to be one of the most intelligent women that I ever knew...she had 10 kids and lived until she was 93. Abraham Lincoln only had about 1 year of formal schooling but was considered a great speaker.
There's nothing wrong with getting a degree in this generation. It seems like people without degrees are the ones who don't know right from wrong since their parents and other adults don't teach them or discipline them anymore. It is true than when you get educated that others get jealous of you and I've experienced that myself. It's easy to be average...it's seems that the average young person now is unethical; they don't believe in truth and probably don't know what it means.
