This is a wonderful little book, designed to inspire. It only took me about 1 hour to read it, but yes, I did cry in a few areas. I hope you'll be able to get your hands on a copy of this book and enjoy it yourself.
I've said this before: Those who don't bother to learn history will often be the ones repeating it. I wonder what kind of grades the leaders in the White House and Congress (both parties) got on their history lessons?
