If your life was on fire, what would be the one thing you save?

Psychotherapist and former pastor Erik Kolbell asks that question of 13 remarkable and unique individuals, and the answers may surprise you. Provided by celebrities such as Jane Pauley and Alan Alda, artists such as Regina Carter and Tao Porchon Lynch, and ordinary people put into extraordinary situations like Don Lange and Brenda Berkman, will help all of us consider what it is that we value most in life.

His goal, Kolbell says, is not to examine the worth of each of these things. "What matters is that for all of the sham and artifice that can make cynics of us all, there are things, solid things, that compel us onward."
