Yesterday was a sad day for me, as one of my heroes, and a great inspiration to millions passed away with little notice. Louis Zamperini ran the 5,000 meter race in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and even though he didn't medal, he ran his last lap in 56 seconds. He joined the Army Air Corps as a bombardier on the B-24 Liberator and flew for 2 years before his plane went down in the middle of the Pacific. He and 2 others were the only survivors ando he endured 47 days in a life raft before being captured by the Japanese.

He spent 2 years in a POW camp, and the Japanese knew he was famous. They tortured him and beat him every day before the war finally ended.

His life story is written in a book called "Unbroken" which is also going to be a movie directed by Angelina Jolie, coming out in December. I urge you to read the book, and see the movie. It's one of my all time favorite books, and a huge inspiration.

RIP Zamperini
