5.0 out of 5 stars David McCullough scores another hit!, June 10, 2011
This review is from: Charlie Rose: An hour with David McCullough (June 9, 2011) (DVD)
I stumbled upon David McCullough's interview by Charlie Rose on Bloomberg TV Friday, June 10, from 8 to 9 p.m. I had read David's excellent book on John Adams. David's emphasis tonight was the mutual influences of Paris upon Americans and American's influence upon France. He emphasized the uniqueness of America among world nations with free speech, opportunity to maximize one's self, the rule of Law and not by men and women, plus the need for education to be foremost in every citizen with greater respect for teachers and higher pay. He spoke of a substitute teacher who entered his history class and said, "Do not write dates or quotes, that is why we have books. Just understand what happened and why."
David said that statement shanged his life and he began to perceive history as joyful and a pleasure to learn what happened in the past and why. That is why he bagan to research and write so many books about people in history. However, David said his legacy should be primarily as a father, husband, and brother. Family must come first in everyone's life.
