Building on their research from The Leadership Challenge, James Kouzes and Barry…
Samuel Weist tried to escape his past by changing his name to Samuel Hunter. Since the night Porter spared his life, Samuel tries to make amends for the mistakes of his youth by becoming a lawyer and providing services for those who cannot afford representation. When he discovers that Porter has been arrested, he visits the jailhouse and confesses to Porter about his part in Ben’s death. Samuel begs Porter to forgive him—and he does.
The city erupts when Porter is sentenced to death. Samuel is caught in the riot and is nearly killed. Lying in the hospital, he is pronounced dead, but he comes back to life as a modern-day miracle. In death he sees his life in a new light and decides that the only way that he can atone for his deeds is to face the truth.
On the steps of the courthouse, Samuel prepares to pay the cost for his redemption. It is time to tell his story to the world. He can feel the fire in his soul and as he steps toward his destiny, Samuel feels his spirit shine.
