really liked it
Read from October 02 to 28, 2011

I've never gotten more attention while traveling . . . I don't know if it's the yellow cover of the book or the movie . . . I got stopped to ask how I liked it . . . I got stopped and asked if I'd seen the movie . . .

Overall, I enjoyed the book, and when I stopped to think of when segregation and civil rights were happening, my parents were teenagers. They lived right through the middle of all this . . . even though 50-60 years seems like a long time ago, it was just back around the corner. I have to wonder--how far have we really come, and how far can we really go in creating a better equality for everyone.
