I went to elementary, middle, and high school with Monica; I sure wish her the best. In the meantime, I hope she's staying active in criminology, perhaps offering her expertise on a volunteer basis somewhere, with hopes that it will lead to something paid and stable. Never give up on your dream, Monica.

I know a few John's from that far back, elementary school and thank you so much for the encouragement. Since I don't know which John you are, none-the-less, thanks for reading the article and well wishes.

Monica
