Das honored service members and remembered his grandfather yesterday on Memorial Day. He honors his grandfather's legacy by dedicating himself to something larger....dedicating his life to public service.
“The characteristic that wins a war is the same characteristic that makes a society work, and that’s self-sacrifice,” said Santa Barbara City Councilman Das Williams, whose grandfather was a POW in Japan from 1942-45.
He said that although his grandfather had to sit out the majority of World War II, the greatest lesson he passed on to his family was that little bits of self-sacrifice and dedication to something larger than oneself is what ties together the fabric of U.S. society. - Noozhawk
