  1. I am astonished at the resourcefulness and the drive of people like Trevor. That nothing, brings down their spirit. He seems so positive through it all. I am amazed. It’s, he’s inspiring. His descriptions of the neighborhoods bring me there.
    I think it’s so important to learn about history, other’s life experiences, other cultures. Makes us more understanding, more compassionate, hopefully more empowered to help with needed change.

  2. This is a fabulous recommendation for the Book Club, so I just want to thank everyone who voted to select Trevor’s bio. This is the first Club selection I am reading. Thoroughly enjoying Trevor’s approach to life and his life lessons, both poignant and funny. I never knew many specifics about life under apartheid, so this has given me insight into that terrible time and policies in South Africa.

    Unfortunately, I will miss the discussion on the 28th, but look forward to the next book selection and connecting.
