 Stories


Every once in a while, a film is released that tells the story of something that actually happened or is based on an idea or event that did happen. Examples of such stories that made it to the silverscreen are Saving Private Ryan, Schindlers List, and Patch Adams among others. The Perfect Storm is one such film that is based on a true account, an account that pitted ordinary people in extraordinary events. While some of the stories that I've included below are probably not as horrifying or intense as the waters that the Andrea Gail sailed, they still showcase an element of human drama that is rarely visible in our daily lives. Perhaps what makes these stories so incredible is the fact that there is more to the story than what you see on the screen and hear in the dialogue, there are real people telling real stories for a real audience. That is the purpose of this section of the site, to expose those stories that might not have gotten the attention it deserved. To the right are a few examples of some amazing, horrifying, and inspirational accounts of real life events that happened to real people.

Wind of Hope- I have collected information on a story that I found extremely amazing. This is a shocking true story about a lone stranded Russian sailor who performed surgery on himself during a storm in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean thousands of miles away from help. Definitely one of the best human drama stories I've ever read.

Satori- Kent Leonard, the son of Ray Leonard sent in this interesting story about his father who was also in the Storm of '91. Good read.
