Through a closer examination and discussion of the words of Adlai E. Stevenson II, learn more about his ideas and responses to both personal and world events throughout his life, and the lessons we can apply to our own lives. Stevenson was born on February 5th and it is now known as Adlai Stevenson Day in the state of Illinois.

We often hear that we can learn larger lessons from the past, but what can we learn from the lives of historic figures that we can apply in our own every day lives. In this series we will explore the various ways that we can learn from both the triumphs and the failures of those who came before us, which will help us better understand our shared human experience.
