Life gives you stories that resonant within.  Stories like a young shepherd boy picking up five smooth stones and slaying a giant with a simple sling and a faith in God.  Stories like a band of brothers completely encircled by German troops in WWII and when rescued by Gen. Patton claiming that they didn’t need rescuing, they were holding their own just fine.  Stories about a rag tag bunch of colonies winning a war against the greatest world power of their time because they believed they could.  Stories about a 6 seed Villanova defeating Georgetown for the NCAA championship, not because anyone else thought they could but because they thought they could.   A runner survives 26 miles to warn his countrymen.  A black woman refuses to move to the back of the bus.  Stories like these inspire and bring hope because everyone of us is weaker than someone, smaller than someone and faces obstacles of our own.
