Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 4, 7:27 AM

It's Friday and time for some inspiration after a long week. I found this video and it's a wonderful story. With a surprise ending!


The video is only 4:30 minutes long. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend.


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

Sue Gould's curator insight, April 6, 9:07 PM
This story is so powerful, in that it can be and is relational to many people we all come in to contact with every day. The tears that resulted were from one of joy when I saw this man's spirit had not changed, in fact he was determined to allow his thoughts and views to be written and distributed to help others. Truly inspirational.
