Friends from the first (grade)

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY My first memories of school were the sight  of nuns in these long robes and many children about my size, but I had no idea who they were. This new environment was scary to this 5 year old. I just wanted to go home to stay with Momma. The irony […]
