I met Rick Santorum today

He was speaking here in Colorado, ahead of the Republican primary in the State next Tuesday.
I really admire his courage and agree with most of what he stands for. After all, we are both committed Catholic fathers. :)
While you may think that this has nothing to do with my geography blog, I still find it fitting. You see, one of the reasons I study and want to teach others about geography is to speak up about the value of every human life, no matter how poor, how small, or where he/she happens to live on this earth.

In this video, Rick Santorum shares this truth with a very personal example.
I hope you enjoy it.
