Sunday Stealing: Memorial Day Weekend


Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's meme. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.  

Let's go!!!

Senna

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the untimely, tragic death of Brazilian F1 driver, Ayrton Senna.

I watched the movie "Senna" about a year, year and a half ago, not really knowing who he was. I had seen some tweets and heard some chatter about it being the best movie of 2010. I enjoy documentaries and sports, so I figured I'd give this movie a try. One night, late, I saw it was on Netflix so I immediately started watching it. 

I was gripped.

I was ripped.

This man is truly a soul with purpose who has an everlasting legacy, especially in the Formula One racing community. 

I highly recommend this movie. Please make time to watch it. It isn't just about racing. It's about a visionary, a family man, a spiritual person who exudes compassion. It's about a competitor who had the whole of the sport's safety first. He lived life from the inside out, being a heartonhissleeve force that positively connected to every person.

Eternal peace, Ayrton.
