"There is enormous value in the telling of these and hundreds, thousands of stories of great people from the past and present, as many as we can find. Why? Because stories give us a map for what is possible in the world. They show us how individuals have negotiated the challenges, the pain, the defeat, the prejudice, the naysaying, and how they've prevailed. They argue for those of us down in the trenches that we too are capable of extraordinary feats."
