  6. Lasana I loved this! I love him, and I love that you let him carry the conversation, and show us exactly who he is, and what drives him. As a former teacher I was also fascinated by his understanding of the support structure that helped him develop into the person he’s become.

    • Thanks Pat. He is a man who has figured out who he is and what his goals are. That’s being blessed for sure. Self-discipline is not such a common trait.
