Opinion

Have you ever felt hopeless?

Last summer, based upon a friend’s recommendation, I read the book “Unbroken.” The book tells the story of a young man named Louie Zamperini who grew up in California around the time of the Great Depression. As a kid, he was known as a trouble maker with few things that he wouldn’t steal, but he ran too fast for anyone to catch him! His older brother realized how gifted Louie was and encouraged him to join the track team at their high school. Louie went on to set collegiate records on his way to running in the 1936 Olympics.
