jaime escalante died yesterday.
this is the story that got me out of bed this morning. i sat up in bed and frowned. i feel an inexplicable connection to mr. escalante and i’m quite sad to hear his time here has come to an end.
i don’t know any more about him than what was portrayed in the movie stand and deliver but to me, that’s enough.
as he said himself, that movie was “90% truth, 10% drama.”
so here’s a bit of one of my favorite movies of all time.
rest in peace kemo sabe.
