I don’t know about other kids’ past or present, but when I hit high school and as I drew near to the day of my sixteenth birthday, there was only one thought on my mind. That was to get my driver’s license and my own car. With those two items in hand, I had obtained my independence!

That you heard correctly.

To have a license to drive and a set of keys to a car that was there for me to get into and drive away from the farm and go just about anywhere was, in my mind, the ultimate goal a sixteen-year-old could possibly obtain.
