Hope is not about everything turning out okay; it is about being okay no matter how things turn out.
- Carol Kodish-Butt
The world is filled with stories of everyday
people who find themselves in life or death
situations and miraculously live to tell about it.
They overcome life-threatening illnesses, they
survive their houses being destroyed by tornadoes,
they are saved after being swept away by flood waters
or after losing their way in a storm.
But these stories are more than tales
of survival; they are inspiring stories about
the faith and hope that sustain us in
times of trouble.
In this story from June 1966, filmdom's man of a thousand voices reveals that he had to face death before he could learn how to live.
