Overview

Broken marriages, abuse, brutality, and illness are some of the worst and most frightening events that can enter anyone's life at any time, without warning, and without any respect for rules or ideas of fairness. However, each of us can respond to any of these things in a manner of our own choosing. The Courage to Give is an amazing collection of stories by thirty people about their situations and their chosen responses. As Joan Lunden, former host of Good Morning, America writes in her foreword: "It is easy to stay in a place of pain, wondering 'Why me?' questioning life, or feeling sadness and sorrow. But if we make the effort to help someone else, we begin the healing process for ourselves. Each one of us has the ability to answer that call to action. If we identify a need in our community or hear someone crying out for help, we can and we must answer the call. The people Jackie profiles in this book, in spite of their physical or emotional pain, heard the call and sprung into action, making a difference in our world. Their courage inspires us to remember, even in the face of adversity, our responsibility to each other and ultimately to ourselves. It's one of the most wonderful compensations of life-that no person can sincerely try to help another without helping themselves."
