Ken Gire has written a very interesting book about the life of Albert Schweitzer.
The book tells of a man who was extremely intelligent, and would be considered a success in multiple areas. He had degrees and knowledge of philosophy, music, and medicine.
He used his knowledge to help those who did not have the health services they needed to survive in a rough environment: Africa.
Albert Schweitzer lived through World War 1 and World War 2. He was considered a prisoner of war during the First War and he had to leave his work at the hospital to be imprisoned.
He also had to leave his work to raise money to continue the hospital’s work several times.
In addition to working in establishing the hospital, playing concerts, lecturing at universities, he also was a writer.
Albert Schweitzer not only helped people during his lifetime, his life continues to inspire people today through foundations named for him, the hospital he established, and his influence on others that was profound.
