Dr. Grossnickel has compiled a profound authoritative sequel to Kubler Ross's research on the stages of grief regarding death and dying; however, what happens to those who continue living? Dr. Grossnickle brilliantly interweaves the stories of these eight resilient athletes with the teachings of great philosophers, academics, writers, poets, others with disabilities, and religious leaders. He connects the dots behind all of our questions regarding the meaning of life, what makes life worth living, why bad things happen to good people, and what traits are necessary for the human spirit to transcend rather than succumb to overwhelming adversity. Dr. Grossnickle eloquently diaries and then analyzes the survivor boys' spiritual and motivational journey to get busy living rather than get busy dying. He personally demonstrates that we must all be our brothers and sisters keeper; that nothing can be accomplished in isolation and that hunanity can only survive if we take care of one another. Don Grossnickle's important book about this group of extraordinary athletes is destined to inspire, instruct, and enlighten readers for years to come. It is a testament to the unbreakable power of the human spirit and the transcendent force of friendship, love and faith: Indispensable wisdom for anyone hungry to open their heart and see the world with new eyes. Deacon Don gives us great insight into how all of us can learn life lessons about unbreakable resilience.,.. they ended up not as victims, but as role models of our lives. We are all capable of rising like the phoenix to a greater glory, and this book shows us how.
