An Awesome Find

  1. Hi Mike,
    I enjoyed reading your post and have just recently read a young adult book about Nelson Mandela that filled me in on some things I didn’t know about him. The book had enough information to inform but wasn’t too heavy or academic that a teenager (or myself) would lose interest. Photos of his life and times were appreciated too!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed it…I have learned that sometimes we learn more from the stuff that isn’t to “heady” than we do from in depth biographies or technical stuff…

    2. Have you seen “Invictus?” I’ve seen it three times already and LOVED it each time. It’s the story of Nelson Mandela after becoming president of South Africa and how he uses a rugby team to bring together two sides of what could have escalated into a civil war. Morgan Freeman does a fantastic job as Mandela. We used the film as a development event for the staff at our organization and had an employee who was born and attended school in South Africa share some insights and observations. It was fascinating and made the story that much better. If you haven’t seen it, check it out.
