Theme: With courage, we can face what frightens us.

A Native American tale about Boy-Strength-of-Blue-Horses and his grandfather reminiscing about the boy’s birth, his first horse, and his first horse race where he faces his greatest challenge—his blindness.

In this segment, the emphasis is on courage and encouraging people to face the things that frighten them. LeVar faces a night alone in the wilderness and overcomes doubt. Viewers will be inspired by an interview with Bree Walker, a news anchor who has overcome her disability of deformed hands and feet.
