At the Annual Homecoming of William and Mary College in Virginia, you might see a famous Governor, a College President, or any number of prominent business and professional people, proudly wearing a white jacket. The jackets signify that these men earned all or most of their way through college, as waiters.
They weren’t ashamed of menial work, they didn’t hold out for the job they liked, they didn’t ask for government help they waited on tables, and it helped them earn the education and success they now have.
Mahatma Gandhi gave shining examples in this regard by sweeping, scavenging, cleaning even toilets while in South Africa. He never felt degraded in doing jobs we would consider inferior or menial. Pride comes from within! You can do anything and everything and make it dignified!
