“Unbroken” Shares the True Story of WWII Veteran Louis Zamperini [VIDEO]

“Unbroken” is one of the most amazing stories of survival you will ever hear.

Set to hit the big screen soon, Unbroken is the amazingly mind-blowing true story of Louis Zamperini, a record-setting Olympic athlete that served in World War II, only to be shot down, left at sea, and then captured by his enemies.

The best-selling novel by Laura Hillenbrand has now been made into a movie, directed by Angelina Jolie, and comes out December 26, 2014.

“If I can take it, I can make it.”

If you have not read Unbroken I strongly recommend it to anyone, you will not be able to put it down. We should all be aware of what our veterans had to endure for the freedom that we have today.

This particular story of Louis Zamperini tops them all, and you will never forget it. It will definitely give you a new perspective on life…

Upset because you didn’t get that promotion? Can’t afford that new car you’ve been wanting?

How about being left at sea for over a month, attacked by sharks, shot at, captured by your enemy, and then tortured in a prison camp?

Don’t sweat the small stuff.
