Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The citizens of this country, as well as our friends around the world, truly do stand united.

Heroism has been redefined, our core values have resurfaced and a new sense of local and national community has emerged.

You won't find most American heroes walking through the pages of history books or atop huge monuments. Their names don't generally make the headlines or the 6 o'clock news. A true hero is simply someone who makes a difference—large or small—in the lives of others.

On September 11, 2001 our nation suffered the tragic loss of thousands of lives in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Immediately, policemen, firefighters and other emergency workers in New York and Washington, DC along with thousands of other Americans responded with an outpouring of courage, selfless service and faith.

The overwhelming and passionate stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul of America honor and celebrate the men, women and children who stepped forward in this great time of need and, through their actions, exemplified the true nature of the American Spirit!

Celebrate The Soul of America with your loved ones ... with hope and determination—now and for the future!

Synopsis:

Celebrating the everyday heroes who have recently been revealed in light of the events of September 11th, "Chicken Soup for the Soul of America" also includes helpful resources for those suffering a loss or struggling to overcome post-traumatic stress.

Synopsis:

Most American heroes aren't in our history books, nor do they have monuments erected in their honor. Their names aren't in the headline news or memorialized in song. The true hero is simply someone who makes a difference-large or small-in the lives of others. They battle disease, crime, poverty and human rights violations. They clean up environments, mentor neglected children and truly care about others. Most importantly, anyone can be a hero in the eyes of another.

In Chicken Soup for the Soul of America, everyday heroes are celebrated. Heroes have always been in our midst, but the recent terrorist attacks on American soil have revealed many more heroes who have given their lives, love, time and strength to those in great need. In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 events, Americans have found courage and inspiration from so many heroes, and this book pays tribute to them all, as well as those who appear every day in our lives.

At a time when so many are in pain, these unique stories will touch readers with love and wisdom, the cornerstones of the American people and the hallmark of the well-loved Chicken Soup series.
