ABCs of Being Smart: J Is for Journey
Foster, Joanne
Parenting for High Potential, v2 n5 p14 Mar 2013
The old saying, "life is a journey" may sound cliched, but the words are nevertheless true. Children can learn a great deal from the travels and directions chosen by others, and especially from people whose life stories or experiences offer inspiration by virtue of their effort, perseverance, and acquired success. This article presents a list of accomplished individuals whose last names all start with the letter J. They are representative of many men and women who have joined the top ranks in one field or another by working hard--jarring the status quo by juggling, jostling, or overcoming jeopardy (it can be a jungle out there!)--and often their journeys are jubilant and just.
