AN INCIDENT- THAT CHANGES A LIFE (YOURS)
A simple incident can change the direction of your life. Write me about it and I will put it into my blog.
I came from a poor family and I was brought up by my mother (divorced) and grandmother. I never did well in school and failed in grade 7. I knew nothing about studying. When I was 12 years old my mother married and I lived with two step-brothers. They studied, and from them I learned that unless you were exceptionally brilliant you had to study to pass in school. I did very well in my final year in high school and was accepted into Pharmacy, a difficult course for anybody. Studying made the difference.
As I mentioned I came from a poor family and did not have the finances to open a drug store, so the Canadian government came to my rescue. They passed a law which allowed the pharmacist to change a doctor`s prescription to the less expensive generic equivalent with the patients permission. I opened a drug store with no drug stock on the second floor of an apartment building and when I received a prescription I phoned the doctor , got the change and mailed the less expensive medicine to the patient COD All with no overhead. I had a partner and we split his salary.
There are many more older people who will need to be looked after. Their children will do the job but they have paying jobs as well. Companies will have to make arrangements as they have for looking after children to look after parents.
