Make your own sunshine : inspiring stories of people who find light in dark times / Janice Dean.

Dean, Janice, 1970- (author.).


The Fox News meteorologist shares the inspiring stories of people who made the best of difficult times, from a 9/11 firefighter who fought for his colleague's health to a stranger who bought coffee for his fellow patrons.
Good people are all around us doing selfless deeds, from a firefighter who bravely battled for his colleague's health after 9/11 to a good Samaritan who secretly pays for the coffees of everyone in line behind him. Dean has made it her mission to uncover and document good stories to inspire us and gives us a much-needed boost of optimism. All we have to do is open our minds and our hearts, to look for the light on a cloudy day. Because as she reminds us, if we don't make our own sunshine-- who will? -- adapted from jacket.
