True American Hero

If it weren't true, we wouldn't believe it! At Bookenders book discussion, we discussed the amazing life of Louis Zamperini, as it was masterfully told by best-selling author, Laura Hillenbrand.

Louis was:
a teen-age troublemaker
Olympic runner
WWII bomber
plane crash survivor
tortured prisoner of Japanese

but more importantly,
he used his ingenuity, his perseverance, his strong will, his resilience,
his forgiveness,
to thrive.

He spent his life helping troubled youth
and inspiring people around the world
with his extraordinary story.
