3. two books about hard work and sacrifice
This is my third post on books that influenced me this past decade. Today I feature two books that were rather humbling. They are:
-Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington
-The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw
These two books put in perspective just what it is to work hard and why one would sacrifice so much for something. They also gave an inspiring picture of what can be accomplished if we put our mind to it as well as providing powerful examples of true vision. Speaking of great accomplishments, I’m slowly chipping my way through Summa Theologica by Thomas Aquinas. Incredible.
