Dr. McCain's determination to "do something about it" in the face of discrimination is inspirational. Taylor's interview of her grandfather shows such poise and understanding.

I loved the message near the end of the video about success. Personal success is expected, we need to think broader. We should strive to be a personal success at minimal. When we start thinking about what we can achieve beyond our own personal triumphs is where the real success lies. When we help our community/nation to move forward, that's when we can be proud of success, when it positively affects the ones we care about and everyone around us as a whole.

This is very moving & beautiful Taylor. I'm sure you have fond memories of times with your grandfather, learning about his life & the civil rights movement... thanks for sharing with the world!
Lisa, (Tori's aunt)
