Sullivan embraced his life-changing advice: In the face of adversity, we have a choice. We can be bitter, or we can be better. His message became the theme in many columns she wrote about kindred spirits: Bret Baier, Vince Flynn, Temple Grandin, Lee and Bob Woodruff, and more. Encouraged by bestselling author Vince Flynns generous assessment of her lyrical writing style, Sullivan has woven together her own personal experiences as a life crisis survivor with those of the people behind many columns she wrote for the St. Paul Pioneer Press opinion page.By sharing stories of those who faced adversity and went on to do remarkable things, Sullivan discovers the healing power of both words and action.
