You're never too old

Alferd Williams has proven that it's never to late to fulfill a dream or keep a promise. At 70 years old he returned to the 1st grade in effort to learn to read and write. As a young boy he dropped out of school to work in the fields and help support his family. His mother made him promise that someday he would learn to read. That is just what he did. Instead of enrolling in an adult literacy program he opted to return to school entirely and he is now being educated along side a classroom full of children at a Missouri elementary school.
