A Nice Postcard From Paris

Paris Postcard

Who (or what) Are You?

When asked who you are you give your name. Then you may be asked what you are or what you do. Names sometimes have letters after them denoting qualifications. These are known as post-nominal letters. To some people these are important – I have even seen them on gravestones. To some, their title is important. Some people have more titles and post-nominal letters than name. Sometimes people even become those letters and titles. Yet, am I really a bachelor of science, a master of arts or a doctor of philosophy? At the end of the day, I am not just 'me', I am just 'I'.
