So this inspiring man has left us. The LA times provided one of the best written biographical obituaries about this legendary teacher. I remember when I first saw Stand and Deliver, I was so moved that one person could inspire and change the lives of so many. He was a reminder to ask ourselves, what do each of us do to change and inspire the lives of others? Do we make another person’s life easier? Do we help them to embrace change and transformation? How do we serve the greater good?
How interesting was it that 60 Minutes had recently done a segment on this dedicated teacher:
We each have the capability to change a life, to help someone see what they cannot through their own eyes. Sometimes the person we try to help choose to be blind, but for those who are ready to see the world and to see themselves differently, this is our chosen duty. How do you serve?
