The Formative Rattlesnake (The impact of SuperDogs, Rattlesnakes and Cotton Chopping on Wall Street Careers) SPECIAL FROM GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES
"I saw that rattlesnake and walked away from the farm" Granny declared. Her succinct statement was true but could not have described the broader implications. "I took my youngest baby Jim Bob and laid him on a blanket at the edge of the field, while I chopped cotton. When I came back to get a drink of water a rattlesnake had curled up on the blanket beside him."
Horrified Granny killed the snake with her hoe and said: "At that moment, I hated the farm, hated the dirt, sand, dust, heat and cold. I told Noel we would make a different life starting NOW!". She walked away from farming and changed the hopes, aspirations and dreams for her family and heirs for generations.
