October 31, 2003
Very few people have ever heard of Bethany Hamilton before that fateful day on this day in 2003 when she was attacked by a shark while surfing in Hawaii. Hamilton was an aspiring surfer before her left arm was bitten off. Surprisingly, her determination allowed her to resume her surfing and become a voice of inspiration to many. Her 2004 autobiography, “Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board” was turned into a feature film in 2011.
