    Why do we not give more of this type of exposure to the people of today? We need this type of uplifting and inspiring motivation to change the ugly world we have created today. No one remains humble anymore and generous. They are all about themselves. If we want to make a change we must change a little bit of ourselves each and everyday. It will be like a stone in a pond and create a ripple effect and begin changing things around it. This was great by Denzel and I applaud his wisdom. He is by far one of the best MEN in our spotlight today.

Galileo Galilei was an Italian renaissance man who made significant contributions to the sciences of motion, astronomy, and to the development of the scientific method. He is best known for improving the telescope to gain better knowledge of the planets and stars.

Galileo sought knowledge from a variety of disciplines, and his discoveries led him to believe the Earth and planets revolve around the sun. Although he championed for this belief, it was challenging because most people during his time believed the Earth was at the center of the Universe and all planets orbited Earth.

Because of Galileo’s views, he was sentenced to house arrest for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, he was a central figure in the scientific Renaissance, and contributed greatly to the scientific community.
