In other news, I am reading one of the best books I've read in a LONG time - ROOTS. I am only halfway through it and I suggest you read it if you haven't yet. It was always on my "must read in this lifetime" lists but thanks to Danielle (holla!), she provided the audio version to me and I am hooked.
I cannot believe people kept other people as slaves. I mean, I know about it from school and just common knowledge but reading this story, I still cannot fathom that this actually happened between real humans. It's absolutely sick. Unbelievable story though. Please check it out.
Going on a tangent, because Roots is probably the most well known mini-series of all time (although my coworker had no idea what Roots was..never heard of it and yes she's only like a year younger than me), I implore you to also read the North and South trilogy and then watch that mini-series.
Civil war + Patrick Swayze = ~~awesomeness~~
Peace Out for Now
