i am so proud

My daughter was promoted to Chief tonight in CAP. It is her last enlisted rank. Considering that the events and her choices of last summer caused her to loose all rank for six months,this is an even bigger moment. She took her consequences (never fully understanding why) and dealt with the gossip( never quite understanding why there either) did her time and earned the respect of a lot of people. It is not easy in general for her to promote. The testing is difficult for her and often she has to retake a test. It has become easier for her as time has progressed,but it has never been easy. She has stuck with it. She has worked twice or three times as hard as most other cadets and has success to show for it. Her success.
Not bad for a girl who didn’t learn to read until she was almost twelve.
I am so very,very proud of her.
