I for one am damn proud of this man for starting on his education :tup:

This belong in the video section.

Though I give that man a lot of respect. There is a lot of illiterate older people out there. Especially if they lived in rural areas. Many are afraid to come forward to gain education. Many think they are too old. This made me feel good. I hope he continues. He will never be a college grad or anything, but will appreciate reading in a way practically none of us can.

Only saw the beginning of the vid and kinda got the jist of it. It’s pretty pointless to go to school at that age. I mean if all he wants to do is learn to read then he can get a tutor and avoid the embarassment. There was 75+ year old woman who graduated from my college this or last year, can’t really remember but that was pretty pointless too. But for personal accomplishment I guess it’s ok for them.
