Penned by renowned Civil Rights attorney David M. Weitzman, Living A Life That Matters will not jump off the shelf for the causal bookstore window shopper. The title, the image all suggest an intellectual read reserved for professors, scholars, politicians and the like.

For those who take the time to pull back the cover for even a single page, one will find Living a Life That Matters is so much more than the boring historical account of a person who has no real bearing on life today.

In a compelling, period piece with modern drama and life situations that transcend time constraints, Weitzman passionately presents and discusses the weakening of Fourth Amendment thanks to the arrival and advances of modern technology, How Lafayette was a prime example of the ruling class taking risks to his wealth and well-being to ensure the freedom of the American people.

He also discusses why people must always be aware of potential encroachments of their freedom and what to do in response to these trespasses.

Weitzman is a seasoned civil right attorney handling such high profile cases in his lifetime as the 1960’s activist Abbie Hoffman famous U.S. Flag shirt case, the rights of farm workers in Delano, garment workers in Los Angeles, and Black Marines at the Camp Pendleton Marine base accused of attaching a KKK klavern on the base.

His personal story is larger as a child witnessing the harassment his parents where subject to by the FBI when they opened the first non-segregated movie theater in Washington, D.C.

A man of note and record, Weitzman made a name for himself and shares through intimate portrait and honest account an historical, timeline description of an unknown aristocrat whose has been honored and memorialized throughout the ages.

The name of Lafayette dots the timeline of most American Cities with parks in New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, neighborhoods and transportations hubs, by Military Fleets, highways and many other government responses.

Living a Life That Matters: A Memoir of the Marquis de Lafayette is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Not bad for a man no one knows.
