Some New Year's resolutions aren't built to last.

It's that time of year when we all vow to eat better, exercise, save more money, and generally be the best we can be. So this week we bring you a show all about "Resolutions." We'll hear from the family who strive to find joy in the everyday, despite their son's rare genetic condition. And we'll talk with the D.C. student who had to re-commit herself to her studies...after being shot on her way to school. Plus, we'll hear from the woman whose resolve may have saved some of the District's historic neighborhoods.
