Before Wilberforce, few thought slavery was wrong. After Wilberforce, most societies in the world came to see it as a great moral wrong. To mark the th anniversary of the abolition of the British slave trade, HarperSanFrancisco and Bristol Bay Productions have joined together to commemorate the life of William Wilberforce with the feature-length film Amazing Grace and this companion biography, which provides a fuller account of the amazing life of this great man than can be captured on film.
This account of Wilberforce's life will help many become acquainted with an exceptional man who was a hero to Abraham Lincoln and an inspiration to the anti-slavery movement in America. Levitt , Stephen J.

Pop Culture. The weekend before the trip I get my hair cut by the usual place. When the deed was done, I took the mirror and quickly glanced at myself and noticed one thing off. Between the premature Cherry Blossoms and the all-thumbs haircut, my plan was pretty much bust. We meet at the SFO airport and I text Natalie that I am with Gianna and there shall be no more communication until the question has been asked, I'm going into stealth mode.
She responds back with excitement saying "Yeah sure, sounds good! I should've just ignored it. Gianna and I are waiting for the plane to board and as we are walking down the boarding ramp I decide to quickly look at my phone and I nearly had a heart attack. I just about soiled myself. Did Gianna see my phone when I looked at it?
Not sure, but I had to stick with the plan.
Somehow Eric managed to pull off a surprise engagement and I wouldn't want it any other way! After years of friends and family always asking me how I think he will propose, now I can finally have an answer! It seemed like it was going to just be another trip with Erbear. I was exhausted from our red eye flight on that Thursday morning and after a full day of running around DC seeing friends, I was really looking forward to sleeping in on Friday.
Amazing Grace — Ēriks Ešenvalds
Eric being the planner that he is, had our whole trip planned out, day by day. The plan for Friday was to wake up super early to catch the sun rising with the monuments before our scheduled "tour" on top of the Washington Monument. This would be followed by lunch at one of our favorite restaurants Founding Farmers in DC.
As much as I wanted to wear my preferred workout attire, I knew I shouldn't because of our fancier lunch destination.

Looking back I'm glad I didn't fight Eric on that! We stumbled over to Dunkin Donuts Eric's favorite to get a quick donut and coffee. Being tired and hungry all I wanted was my donut, Eric decided to take a giant bite of my donut and pretty much ate the whole thing looking back now, it was just his nerves!
