This Message Should Be Shared!

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood.  Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard.

So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World.


Great video on Louie Zamperini

  1. Great message today Greg. I was in Torrance the day the Torrance Tornado passed away meeting with some residents at a local restaurant. The place was buzzing with conversations about Louis and the role he played in Torrance’s history. Youth Soccer teams were in town and at the table next to me was a woman explaining to a couple young soccer players who this man was and why so many were sharing his story. It was an atmosphere of energy for sure. Thanks for reminding us of the book.

    • Wow! How exciting that must have been to be in Louie’s hometown and to hear all the buzz of a life well lived. Congrats to all those parents who educated their kids on the role Louie played in history.
      It is a great book!

  2. Greg-
    I read the book on this incredible story a year or so ago……………..it is amazing what the human spirit can endure if your mind is the right place. Every time I think I’m having a “less than stellar” day I just need to think of Louie’s story and remind myself I have NO IDEA what a bad day is! Thanks Greg!

    • Yeah Mike, I feel the same way about challenges after reading the book.
      I love Wayne Dyer’s quote, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Thanks for joining the discussion!
