In "Resurrecting the Champ," a new movie opening August 24, an up-and-coming sports reporter encounters a homeless man who provides him with the inspiration to write a groundbreaking story.
Inspiration can come from a variety of different places, from a friend or family member going through a troubled time, to an athlete, author or religious figure. Who inspires you? Share your story on Gather and your essay could be published in an upcoming issue of Venice Magazine!
