Some cheery news.. Your past doesn't always define your future if you work hard at not making it so.

Much of the news of the last week has focused on wealthy families buying access to great universities, either illegally through bribes or legally through donations. There is no question that America is a tilted playing field that gives wealthy children huge advantages.
Adewumi, the newly crowned chess champion for kindergarten through third grade, went undefeated at the state tournament last weekend, outwitting children from elite private schools with private chess tutors.” (New York Times)
