Parents support a child, later a writer

My parents have been supportive of this project all along, having read multiple drafts, for which I am incredibly appreciate. But more important, they instilled in me a love of learning. I have strived to live by their daily exhortation to be before heading off to elementary school: "Think, have fun, and be a mensch."
