89 - Lone Survivor. Yosemite National Park.

Update: 2022-11-14


We all hope to get through life unscathed. No one wants to experience a traumatic event, as they inevitably come hand in hand with suffering. It may be immediate, or, it may take a lifetime, but according to studies on PTSD and trauma – an overwhelming amount of people who will experience a traumatic event in their lifetimes, were changed in fundamental, positive, ways. Donnie Priest was just 10 years old when the plane carrying his family crashed just outside of Yosemite National Park, killing all on board except for him. His incredible story of survival was only the beginning - it was what he went on to do with his life that would up being the true inspiration.
