the world working as a journalist
and international reporter.
LAURA LING: They're trying to restore control, restore order.
You can see the bullet casings right here.
LAURA LING (VOICEOVER): I think that I have tried hard
to shine a light on issues that need the world's attention.
LAURA LING: In March of 2009 I traveled to Northeastern China
to report on a story about North Korean defectors.
And it was while we were filming along the frozen Tumen river
that we were chased down by North Korean soldiers.
Everything just happened so quickly.
I was eventually knocked unconscious
and dragged into North Korea.
It was the scariest time of my life.
I was isolated in what is perhaps
the most isolated country in the world.
It was very easy for these dark thoughts to invade my mind
and spiral me into a depression.
I thought that I had failed the North Korean refugees
that I had gone to cover.
I felt that I had failed my family.
I did know about various vigils that were taking place for us
across the country and in other parts of the world.
In very dark moments, I would think about those lights.
Seconds there seem like an eternity.
But there was something that I began
to do that helped me get through each day.
And it was a very simple act.
It was practicing the act of gratitude.
And I just started doing it one day, where I was sitting down
and I thought to myself, Laura think
about something that happened today that you can actually
feel grateful for, despite this horrible situation
that you're in.
And so I would say to myself, for example,
I feel lucky I saw a butterfly outside my window,
even though I can't breathe the fresh air.
I feel grateful that I got to go outside for a few moments
and see the sun and feel the warmth on my skin.
Getting letters from my family, I
memorized each and every word.
Doing this definitely was a turning point for me mentally.
I think that there was a point where
I was only thinking about the negative possibilities.
That I wouldn't see my family again.
That I wouldn't ever have children.
That I would spend the rest of my life in that country.
But being able to focus on some of those glimmers of light,
it really did help give me the strength
to look at each new day as a new possibility.
After I came home, I actually continued
to practice this act of gratitude.
And it's a ritual that I do to this day.
And I do it as a reminder of the things that
are important in my life.
Things that I want to cherish and treasure.
Because this ritual had such an impact on me
and who I am today, I want explore
the rituals of other people.
To understand and learn about these practices that
have helped others get through their struggles and obstacles,
and have really helped define who they are.
And so I hope that this series is
this inspirational look into what drives the human spirit.

LAURA LING: much do you have riding on this,
for this to work?
NICK FOUCH: This is kind of everything that I have.
I don't really have a plan B. I don't
know how I would go back now.
