A Good Man

After a lifetime of searching for the path to his father's success in the public arena, Mark instead turns to a search for the secret of his father's joy his devotion to others, and his sense of purpose. He discovers notes and letters from Sarge; hears personal stories from friends and family that zero in on the three guiding principles of Sarge's life-faith, hope, and love-and recounts moments with Sarge that now take on new value and poignancy. In the process, Mark discovers much about himself, as a father, as a husband, and as a social justice advocate. A Good Man is an inspirational and deeply personal story about a son discovering the true meaning of his father's legacy.
