The Rock

I based my whole life on a t-shirt which read: "Basketball is life and the rest is details." I had finally reached the pinnacle of my basketball career. All the sacrifices, hard work, and persistence had finally paid off. I was going to the 1996 Olympic Games.

Free at Last

In 1971, the troubles in Northern Ireland were increasingly becoming a danger to myself and to my children. We were in constant danger from bombs and bullets. This was nothing new. Every day, on the radio, we listened to a horror story of suffering. Our personal horror came one night when we were awakened by two gunmen. One stood at... >Read More



Life out of Death

It seems like yesterday I woke up to find my husband slumped over the dining room table. I tried to wake him but his hand was cold. As I read the letter on the table, I couldn't believe it.

A giant of a man weighing over 300 pounds, Carl Swaboda of Vienna is reputed to be the only man in athletic history that has raised aloft more than 400 pounds. But you might wonder if other less publicly known men somewhere else in the world could actually lift more. Throughout history the strongest men of the land were often... >Read More



The Moon Is Not Enough

I volunteered for the space program for the thrill of adventure. Believe me, waiting for take-off while sitting on top of a Saturn rocket that’s 120 meters tall and weighs six-and-a-half million pounds—that’s excitement! I knew I was in for one great ride! But what can top 11 days in space and 3 days trekking around the moon? I was... >Read More
