In the early 1970s in Atlanta, I attended what had formerly been an all-white school but had become a black school after integration and white flight.

You face challenges in your personal life and in your professional life. I continue to be relentlessly optimistic and not focus on the negative.
If you want to have a good life, you should focus on your family, on your business, on your dog, on your fun, and you'll have a good life.

John F. Kennedy
