Danny Trejo: Sober 46 Years and Giving Back | AARP

A friend of mine shared this on Facebook today and I struck by the transparency and sincerity in this short video clip. I was marginally familiar with Mr. Trejo’s past, but had no idea that he has been so committed to helping others recover. With statements like, “Everything good that has happened to me has happened as a direct result of helping someone else…” and “Education is the key to anything you want to do,” one cannot help but be inspired! And if you’re like me – a little saddened by your students’ involvement in the violence of drugs, alcohol, and gangs – you will be uplifted (right as school is beginning to start: the perfect time for inspiration)!
