Such an “Illumined” Book!!!

Reading/Listening to the stories of individuals who contributed to the betterment of Humanity, Nature and Animals world-wide, in their own time and place, was extremely inspiring for me. It’s the “Good News” that we can all be inspired and benefit from! The authors organized and put it together very nicely!!! I recommend it to everyone; young and old!!!!
