"Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together." - Robert South

This week we'll feature stories about people rallying together to overcome obstacles or achieve a dream. We'll learn about a new program that's helping local seniors regain their voices despite memory loss. We'll head to Rock Creek Park, where a historic mill that once provided Washington with fresh flour is rumbling back to life. And we'll hear about the families converging on Washington for a long-awaited military burial.
