As a story-telling medium, comics can be very powerful. When done right, the combination of words and artwork can deliver profound messages that can easily touch the hearts of its readers.

Want a proof of that? Well, go take a few minutes and read the autobiographical comic we’ve shared below.

Written and drawn by The Oatmeal, this tragic yet heartwarming tale is based on the life of Gene Roddenberry who was “a decorated WWII pilot, a plane-crash investigator, and an LA cop,” the comic tells us. He has likewise survived three plane crashes, one of which has been captured in this short story.

Posted on The Oatmeal website, we learn that this comic was inspired by the Star Trek Creator: The Authorized Biography of Gene Roddenberry, a book written by author David Alexander.

This wonderful story proves to all of us that, yes, it is possible to maintain a positive mindset even if you are in the middle of a difficult situation. And yes, it is possible to do good things in your life even after experiencing terrible things.

Thank you, Mr. Roddenberry, not only for creating Star Trek – a well-loved sci-fi franchise – but most especially, for being an awesome inspiration for all of us.

Go share this uplifting story with someone you think needs a motivation in life.
