5. My son wanted to wear his coonskin cap in his picture when he was in
first grade. The school had a fit and I had to come in and tell them to take the damned picture as my son wanted it. They took the picture and it's still a favorite. Nobody will ever regret the fact that they were an individual and not a conformist in their youth.
