"The Beginning " Part#4

Looking back, I can see that the singing was absolutely necessary..I believe it kept some folks
from going off the deep end..Had they allowed themselves to dwell on their misery, there would
have to have been one hell of a lot of suicides.Strangely enough, the term "Stress" was never
heard...no one could afford it.You did what it took to survive....
One Friday at school, something happened that I never thought much about..They gave one
of those tests to see what the kid's IQ was. It seems that when the teacher read my score, it
caused quite a stir.He ran out of the room and came back with the principal and other minor
officials, and they all examined my paper, looking at me frequently...I had made the highest score
in the whole school, including the high school....I was 12 years old.
I thought I had done something wrong, as they kept frowning at me...This had to be a mistake
this boy was from the migrant worker's camp!..140 classified as genius, I had scored 126.I guess
they.finally settled down, but they weren't happy.
They sent a note home with me for my folks to read...naturally, they were pleased,but my
dad told me"Don't ever tell anyone, they'll just make fun of you" He was right; The next day,
the little genius took his little gunny sack and joined his family in the big cotton field....
