OK, don, i'll byte.
of three children, a daughter has gone on for a BA in hebrew bible. she is
young and plans to continue her training, and would consider working in far
off places, e.g. even uganda or within a three hour flight of it. i support
her and am happy, especially when able to converse with her over the weekly
parasha, bantering hebrew/aramaic, MT/onkelos.
but what of the others? one daughter is probably headed for managerial type
work and a son in on the road toward his flight instructor license.
a proud parent delights in all three contributions to a positive, friendly,
spiritual life on this planet. son would be willing to fly
development/missionary workers around 'forgotten places', too. likewise,
managerial daughter with civil planning, development work. they've been
there, done that, and like the food.
actually, anyway one can positively interact with people is 'nice,
livable', which leaves things pretty wide open.
so, for your statistics, that's 1 out of three in the biblical language
field. though all three speak hebrew to one degree or another. surprise?
the daughter in hebrew bible has picked up greek, not a requirement for
since we ran a greek kindergarten for grownups. ?!? nai? ti? TPR: anasthQi,
