Today's daily sampler gives you a little background on Marco Polo. As I read his story, I thought how often what we think is something that is really horrible ends up being good. Marco Polo was captured and thrown in a prison--a horrible thing--but it was while he was in prison that he had his travels written down. And in turn, those writings awakened a desire in Columbus and others to push past their fears in search of the land Polo described of unfathomable riches, which led to the discovery of a "new world."
What other lessons do you take away from his story?
