Ruk Digest 5/15

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1. Sheryl Sandberg, The COO Of Facebook Talks About Death And Resilience

During her Berkeley Commencement Speech this week Sheryl opened up about the death of her husband:

"It is the greatest irony of my life that losing my husband helped me find deeper gratitude"

She starts talking about her husband at 4 minutes and 23 seconds into the video. (Will take slightly over 20 minutes to watch in full.)

It's powerful and emotional, beautiful yet tragic.

Book of the Week

What I Told My Daughter

Lessons and advice from powerful, influential, and famous women.

This book is geared towards young girls and women, but I really think it's for everyone.

Why I think it's also for boys and men, because it will get them to understand better the world of the opposite sex.
