The Minority

They were only 20 years-old when they married in a wooden church. They would dedicate their lives to helping others, but they knew this would only be possible together. She would work as a case manager in a prison helping to create a pathway towards success with a program called 'No Shortcuts.' It would require many 12-14 hour days and their would be no accolades. They would use salaries only as a vehicle, living as minimalist as possible. 
He would spend his life teaching youth offenders how to use computers, how to create programs and applications that would change their lives. They would be bored, never eat out, and never buy items on credit. Their foster children would learn to love and turn the other cheek again and again. Education would be their entertainment. Sadly they would be in the minority.
