Is knowledge bitter or sweet?

Fourteen year old Irene's parents spent a lifetime building a paradise which sheltered her and her siblings from the harsh realities of the world.

Born in 1971, I am a third-generation native Arizonan. My grandfather’s family arrived here from Missouri in 1912, just after Arizona became a state. Thanks to his stories and those of my other family members, I know how Arizona used to be and how it is today.
