We often hear that we can learn larger lessons from the past, but what can we learn from the lives of historic figures that we can apply in our own everyday lives. In this series we will explore the various ways that we can learn from both the triumphs and failures of those who came before us, which will help us better understand resilience and our shared human experience.
