Every morning is a fresh start for someone in the District.

This week we meet folks blowing away the cobwebs, shaking things up, and seizing the day as they get a fresh start. We'll learn how a cancer diagnosis helped spark a local writer to rediscover her passion. We'll hear how a dramatic rescue from the woods is giving a homeless veteran a second chance. And we'll look at the debate over a plan to give a historic D.C. site a new lease on life.
