For someone, who at forty, does not have an extensive education, the letter has only minor issues. It lacks pronouns such as "I", "my" or "me" occasionally. What I love about this letter, is that it proves that everyone can and should receive a higher education, no matter the age. This letter transcends ages: it could be a letter from this era, sent to Bloomsburg University.
