One of the more interesting aspects of looking into Atlanta’s history is finding out about links that Atlanta has to events and people that are larger than the city itself. On a personal note, it’s those kinds of surprising connections that I find most interesting about living in a city the size of Atlanta.
This week’s story is a rerun of sorts. It is a video we produced a few months back in the middle of the summer when everyone’s mind was on things other than sitting around and watching videos. It is the story of the power of mentors and how they can produce surprising and very profound effects. It is also a love story of sorts, not romantic, but love in a caring and nurturing way. It begins, as most Stories of Atlanta do, with a person who had a dream.
