Favorite Book: "The Power of One" by Bryce Courtenay

"This is an inspirational read. It's also an historically informative saga about the dire political struggles inherent within South Africa. On another level, this book is about personal struggle--about a young boy and his life-long dream, his personal journey, to become a champion. This book makes us realize that it's an honor to have a dream, no matter how difficult, because our dream enriches our life and makes it more meaningful."
