Tragedy happens to everyone. Whether it's the loss of a loved one, a painful divorce, or a serious injury, we must all face personal catastrophe - unavoidable moments that divides our lives into "before" and "after". These events take a heavy toll on everyone, but there are those who have muscled their way through tough times and emerged stronger, wiser - even grateful for their struggle. Author Jerry White is one such example. In 1984, he lost his leg in a tragic accident. He has personally endured the pain of loss and the challenge of rebuilding. Through the organization he founded, White has interviewed thousands of victims of tragedy. With this book, he shares what he's learned.White outlines an effective five-step program for turning tragedy into triumph:1. Face facts
2. Choose life
3. Reach out
4. Get moving
5. Give back
In their own words, his fellow survivors share their stories - a group that includes the well known like Lance Armstrong, Elie Wiesel, and the late Princess Diana, but also the everyday. With compassion, White takes listeners through the process of not only enduring tragedy and victimhood, but going on to thrive.
