A gravely ill former Army paratrooper who said no to a heart transplant, telling disbelieving doctors that his faith in God would heal him; the grieving retired supply sergeant who raises and breeds venomous snakes in honor of his dead teenaged son, who once shared the same passion for reptiles; the elderly World War II veteran who survived combat, only to be reported dead by hometown gossip more times than he can remember over the ensuing 75 years. All these ordinary people who have done extraordinary things in their lifetimes. They are no different than the rest of us — or are they? Would you have the courage to face and overcome similar obstacles? Stories of tragedy and triumph, highs and lows, hitting bottom and rising back to the top. Recovery, overcoming defeat to win again, redemption.
Exploring The Meaning Of Life
Former newspaper reporter turned columnist John H. Clark has a gift for getting people to open up about their lives, and with this second round of personal profile stories, he’s woven a compelling tapestry of American life in “Heroes: Inside the Lives of Ordinary Americans Doing Extraordinary Things.” These remarkably candid, highly personal reflections lead the reader on a journey to the heart of what it means to be a human in today’s increasingly troubled world. The stories range from heartwarming to heart-wrenching, and lead one to examine the biggest question of all — what is the real meaning of life?
