I did this piece in January 2012 for a minister friend who was putting together a sermon on the quality of resilience. She recruited congregants she knew had overcome serious difficulties, and we did the interviews together. The rest was up to me. I think the result is effective, though there are three people I would have omitted from the final video were that decision mine. In this instance, however, the minister's need to avoid hurt feelings was more important than the journalist's imperative of keeping the piece as tight and powerful as possible.
