This book is about Louis Zamperini, who was a World War II bomber pilot who survived a plane crash and was captured and tortured for years as a POW in prison camps in Japan up until the war ended. After he came home, he suffered from PTSD and alcohol abuse, among other things. He found inner peace and peace with God and his tormentors from the past, and started helping troubled kids with an outreach program to mentor to do good in life. He lived to be 94 years old and died happy. I learned from his experience that with all he went through, all my troubles don’t even compare and are insignificant. One day I will leave prison a way better person than when I first went to prison.
