Uncle Julius, Post Script

I forgot to mention in my thoughts on Uncle Julius' passion for learning that later on in his adult life, Moody recognized the wisdom and worth of this amazing man. They graciously offered him an honorary degree, and he could become an alumnus without ever having attended.

He courteously thanked them, but assured them that the paper was not as important to him as the lesson he had learned. Does my culture value the paper which certifies the person or the person?
