Turning Tragedy into Triumph ~ One Man’s Story of Reinvention

1x1.trans Turning Tragedy into Triumph ~ One Mans Story of Reinvention

There’s something magical about the human condition to reinvent oneself at any age. It’s kind of like a gift that we can open up to spark a recharge of the spirit, mind and body. After seeing the wake of devastation from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and losing several of his relatives in the disaster, Claude Hillel left NYC and traveled to the battered country where he would change countless lives for the better from the bowels of unimaginable destruction.

“I’ve never done anything like that before,” Claude said, “but just sitting in front of the TV was not an option.”

In the digital age of fleeing connections and competing time commitments, volunteerism work often loses out on the recognition it deserves. Please take a few moments to watch
