I’ll venture a guess you could guess the theme of today’s Multimedia Monday pretty easily. We’ve got a couple videos embedded below, but mostly we want to direct you to the Sargent Shriver website which continues to be built out with every bit of info, article, video and tribute you could possibly imagine. It’s just an amazing tribute to Sarge’s life and legacy which we can’t encourage you enough to dive in and be in awe of the man’s life, as we are. If you have not posted your own tribute yet, please do so!
