About the Turning Point series:
Sometimes there is a happening in our lives that changes the way we think about ourselves and sends us along a new path. These turning points can come when we are young—thorugh a person we meet, an experience we have, a difficulty we overcome.
Since 1789, only a small number of people have been president of the United States. What has made these individuals unique? Was there a turning point in their lives that caused them to change direction and set them on a path that led them to the White House?
—Judith St. George
