Learning About John

John Stevenson received an apology from the Australian Government for how he was treated in 1969.

John’s story and news of the apology was covered by ABC Radio National and ABC’s 7.30 Report.

Hearing John’s account of his experiences and the role his wife, Joanne, played in telling the story of his treatment took me back to this post about John Dickson (humility and leadership) and this post about Neil Armstrong.

I think all three are connected by profound humility.
