Marion Smith, Stockbridge: “[As a former teacher,] one of the mantras I used to teach my kids that, apparently, was adopted by many of my parents was MYMYRY; M.Y. = Manage Yourself; M.Y. = Motivate Yourself; R.Y. = Respect Yourself. I would go into detail about what each particular statement would mean as far as being something to help them achieve their goals.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
