Mark Shriver “A Good Man”
June 11th, 2012
Few men are as widely praised as Sargent Shriver was. after his death in early 2011. Thousands of tributes hailed Shriver not only for his great public accomplishments — founding the Peace Corps, building President Johnson’s War on Poverty — but also his personal virtues.
He was — in nearly everyone’s words — “a good man.” His son Mark Shriver at first misread those expressions as simply the kind of thing you say about someone who’s just died. But he soon realized they meant it. His father was a good man.
He then set out to discover more about the father he had always admired and looked up to.
His book is called “A Good Man.”
