Life lessons – Gandhi, bovenstaande tekst – vindt men in onderstaande video van 30 minuten

Barack Obama, 33 jaar, nieuw gekozen senator 2005 en uitgenodigd door de president in het Witte Huis, zoals met veel humor gezegd op minuut 2 in de video (de eerste 10 seconden van de video zijn zonder klank).

De leuke onderstaande video over de persoon Barack Obama heeft dezelfde strekking als de video onder het menu ‘Preface’: ‘You cared about me’ door procureur Adam Foss.

Voorbeeld het spontaan persoonlijk eerlijkheidsgehalte (beiden – nieuw gekozen senator en de brand nieuw procureur – ongeveer even oud, het is ongeveer hetzelfde jaar, ze hebben het out-of-the-box daadwerkelijk idealisme.

 …unless you really HAVE walked a mile in their shoes! (Dit is van toepassing op beiden).

In onderstaande video van 30 minuten spreekt Barack Obama als 33 jarige op verrassende wijze over de heel aparte levenswerkelijkheid van zijn jeugd.

Bemerk: De eerste 12 seconden is er geen klank
