Oklahoma City suffered the Deadliest Domestic Terrorist Attack in American History, killing 168 men, women and children and injuring close to 800. Chris Fields was there front and center, serving his community as a firefighter. He was captured in a photo that became an iconic symbol of the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995, when he was cradling the body of 1 year old Baylee Almon. He served the citizens of Oklahoma City for over 31 years and has now dedicated his life to speak to other 1st responders, discussing the brutal realities of a life spent responding to citizens in their darkest hours. He also shares his personal story of how that day in 1995, along with other traumas, took a toll on his life and his family. Having suffered in silence for many years, he now shares how he found his way out of the darkness, in the hopes of helping others to avoid the failure and pitfalls, along with encouraging them to reach out when they need help.

In October of 2018, Amanda stood on the ledge of a Canadian hotel room, ready to jump and end her life. She had been a victim of sexual assault at the age of 16, lost both of her parents in her very early 20's, and found herself spiraling down into the world of drugs and self-harm. She had sought help but wasn't able to get people to understand the pain she had been experiencing. As she stood upon that ledge with only the thought of easing her pain, a song began playing in the distance that woke her up from her daze and brought her down off that ledge, giving her hope to try once again. Amanda took back her life and is now a Mind-Body Wellness coach with a specialty in Holistic Nutrition. She is also a fitness instructor and coach.
