On the night of February 22-23, 2014, Russian president Putin called an all-night meeting with his security services, while Ukrainian president Yanukovych was chased out by the Euromaidan Revolution. He warned that something must be done to return Crimea to Russia. The following day, masked Russian troops without insignia took over Crimea's parliament building and captured strategic sites. Within 3 weeks, a hasty referendum turned the territory over to Russia. What really happened?

Inside of every person are the ingredients for courage, originality, and leadership. Sometimes our environment suppresses them, or we tell ourselves that we can't possibly take a risk--those are the easy, lazy times. Other times we are under attack, threats on all sides, and then we must find that strength inside and trust it and put it to use.
