Sometimes it takes death to find your purpose in life…
… that's what Tony G told us.
This is the first video in our new series Stories from Strangers.
We'll be posting one of these every Monday.
We think everybody has a story to tell, and by listening we can understand each other and make the world a better place.
We're going out into the world to collect stories from strangers…
… on park benches, on the subway, anywhere.
What can we learn from each other?
What can we learn from you?
There are 7 billion stories to tell. 7 billion lessons to learn. 7 billion human experiences to share. This is just the first.

This type of story told with this level of honesty is rare.
What does that mean?
Watch this video, and you'll feel it.
Tyrone walked up to us in the park, curious about what we’re doing.
“We’re capturing people’s stories to share on Facebook, would you like to share?”
What followed was a unique, heartfelt, human story.
He told us about his life – one of adventure, mistakes, heartbreak -with clarity and honesty.
It’s sad, but Tyrone is resilient.
He didn’t sugar coat anything.
He didn’t pretend he was a victim.
He wasn’t looking for someone to solve his problems.
He’s taken ownership of his story, acknowledging the mistakes he’s made while seeing every day as a new opportunity for change.
Tyrone will keep moving forward, taking the good and the bad with a zen-like flow, writing his story as it comes.
We’ll see you on the road, Tyrone.

Usually the worst part about having a long term illness is learning your diagnosis. But what happens when no doctor can figure out what's wrong with you?
Ora is a real life example of a person whose story you might only hear on the show House.
