Three-time Olympic champion Gail Devers once said, “Sometimes we fall, sometimes we stumble, but we can’t stay down. We can’t allow life to beat us down. Everything happens for a reason, and it builds character in us, and it tells us what we are about and how strong we really are when we didn’t think we could be that strong.” In the biography Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Devers ' words illustrate the sturdy determination of Louis Zamperini, which carried him through everything from his track career and time as a prisoner of war in Japan, to his life after World War II had ended. In all, Louie’s unfailing willpower to continue through life’s hardships outshone all other traits throughout his haunting story.
The murder of Denise Amber Lee took place on January 17th, 2008, in Florida. Lee was abducted from her home that morning, and was found dead later that day.

During the course of the day five 911 calls were made, one of which came from Lee on her abductors phone.

The murder of Jonbenet Ramsey is a really depressing and mysterious at that. The murder was extremely brutal, she had wounds on her face, a cracked skull, duct tape on her mouth, she was tied up, and she had a garrote around her neck. According to the documentary we watched she was hit in the head with a flashlight and then strangled with a garrote. It was expected that she snatched a piece of pineapple from her brother’s bowl in which he hit her with a flashlight because of it, and she was still alive so it was most likely the parents got in on it because they didn’t want to be filed for abuse and jailed so they strangled her to death and put a blanket over her body, breaking a window and adding a ransom note to make it seem like someone broke in.
