Reading challenge book 3

Challenge: Read a book you started but never finished.

Profiles in Courage by John F. Kennedy

I started this one a few years ago but only read about 50 pages, so I was glad to have an extra push to read the whole thing. It's a collection of short biographies of United States senators who showed exceptional courage in standing up for what they felt was best for the nation. Most of them were ridiculed and threatened, and many were forced out of politics. So the book is both a history lesson and a reminder of the importance of moral integrity even in the face of pressure.
