Charles Kuralt Quote
I saw how many people were poor and how many kids my age went to school hungry in the morning, which I don't think most of my contemporaries in racially segregated schools in the South thought very much about at the time.
If we had to earn our age by thinking for ourselves at least once a year, only a handful of people would reach adulthood.
