Roger Danley Posted about 1 year ago What from your childhood experience produced "what" or "who" you are now? I very clearly remember my defining childhood experience/ First grade they allowed us to visit the school library. I returned home with 6 books on science, which I placed on a shelf in the hall, just like in the library! They were the only books in our house at that time and everyone wondered at my fascination with them. It was at that moment that I knew that I wanted to be a scientist/engineer and I've never wavered from that path in the succeeding 50 years!
