I recalled (when i was about 8 or so), certain family members wanted all of the children to join J&J.
We were told that we would be able to meet other children, of doctors, lawyers, etc..............but for me and the others, we didnt care.
It was a big fight....which ended, with no one joining.
The difference between then and now, is the fact that there are more AA with degrees, more doctors, lawyers, engineers, phds, etc.........and its not uncommon meeting and associating with people who are just like yourself.
I can understand this happening years ago.....but im not too sure, if it makes a difference today.
