Louis Zamperini died today at the age of 97. He was a WWII veteran, former POW, Olympic runner and is the subject for the book "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand (which is being made into a movie to be released this Christmas).

His life story can be an inspiration for all, which is why I'm creating this topic, to celebrate his life and to make more people aware of a truly great man. His story is one that I will never forget.

To read more about him, here's a good article from the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-louis-zamperini-20140704-story.html

I also encourage everyone to give "Unbroken" a read.
