Adam: I don't even know where to begin. When this first happened, when I regained my sight, it had a great effect on me. The way I feel and think about things. I used to love teaching. I found it challenging and exciting, and and I really thought it was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. But it just isn't. The more I talk to Mr. Davis, and the more I study those law books, the more I realize I want to be a lawyer. I have to be a lawyer. I talked to Mr. Davis tonight, and he's arranged for me to go to Minneapolis and take the exam. If I get a good enough grade, I have a chance at a scholarship. I know that's a big "if," but I just have to try. Mary, I want this more than I've wanted anything in my whole life. I can do it. I just know I can do it. What do you think?
Mary: I don't know what to think. It's such a big surprise.
Adam: Well, i know. Just think about it a minute. If I did well, I could make enough money to get the school anything it needs! Books, furniture, and we can even get one of those newfangled air conditioners so the kids won't die of heat in the summers!
