The Strength of Human Endurance

By Remy Benoit

   History is full of tales of the depths of our will to survival. The tales are the type that fill us with wonder and awe and make us ask ourselves could we endure what this person did.

   The name of Jawad Amer Sayed joins the ranks of those whose will to survive astonishes us. He lived inside a false wall in his home about 100 miles southeast of Baghdad for 22 years.
Join Daniel Williams and the Washington Post for this story: Iraqi Emerges From 22 Years in a Wall.
