Security guard turned famous actor, Quinton Aaron of the Blind Side, will be visiting Capitol Hill this week to promote the organization, Children Uniting Nations. CUN unites at risk children with mentors to aid in their development.
For those of you who have somehow managed to not hear the story of Michael Oher (played by Quinton Aaron) here is a little summary. Michael Oher grew up in Tennessee with a decidedly difficult start in life. During his teenage years he was adopted by a well-to-do family who helped cultivate his exceptional football skills while furthering his education and providing a safe and loving environment. Oher went on to sign a 13.8 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
