07-30-2014 A Life Lesson

Dear Joseph and Lucia,

I’m guessing something… you both feel like you are different than everyone else. Well, you are.  You are both brilliant, attractive and special. Those attributes tend to scare people.  I point this out so you don’t beat yourself up.  Remember, an IQ of 100 is the average.  You are both well above that scale. I had you tested.

When other people are aware of your intelligence, they use intimidation to attempt to level the playing field. Don’t accept it. Just know you have a fantastic heritage full of brilliant minds you come from. Your grandfather helped land man on the moon. Your great-grandfather helped invent the modern Air Force. Not to mention your own father who has a few patents and other accomplishments.

Live this life fully. Don’t be afraid to excel.

Love,
Dad
