The Pillars of the Earth
Ken Follett

The Pillars of the Earth continues to influence my life through the mesmerizing determination the characters portrayed through survival and dedication to life passion. Tom Builder, in particular, knew he wanted to build a grand cathedral and had faith that he would see that dream come to fruition. He diligently worked to achieve his goal not only for his own satisfaction, but also for the good of his family and community. I am grateful for the opportunities through education for me to explore and pursue my life passions for personal and societal fulfillment.
