Meet everyday people with extraordinary stories.

What does it take to find strength in the face of adversity? Why are some able to fight when others cower in fear? Perhaps courage is something we’re born with, a dormant force we can call upon in times of crisis. Some find strength in belief in higher powers. Others find confidence in the support of family and friends. Here are some extraordinary stories of people finding the necessary spark to help them through their darkest moments.
