Morgan Wells, 51

Annapolis, Maryland
Yacht-insurance Agent

"I should have been dead, like, 10 times. When I was 16, I was in a car that flipped. And I was struck by lightning in 1997 — I was on the bridge of a yacht. I saw a flash, and I was gone. Then there was the sound of static and my stepson, Ian, yelling, 'Daddy's dead!' I came flying back to the present. My eyes and ears were hemorrhaging. I have to have my ears rebuilt. Now, when I look at my face and my body, all these wrinkles and scars tell stories. I've never been into doing anything to make myself look better. I know who I am. I've made it this far, and that's pretty great." — Photo by Ben Baker
