Synopses & Reviews
Dedicated to the memory of nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green, who was the youngest of six victims shot and killed on January 8, 2011, during the shooting spree at Rep. Gabrielle Giffords's political event in Tucson, Arizona, Faces of Hope Ten Years Later
continues the celebration of life born amid the darkness of tragedy.
Christina, born on 9/11, was among the fifty children profiled in 2001's edition of Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11, and now her legacy is joined by 49 other children, who, ten years after their birth, have something to share and teach about hope, wonder, and dreaming big dreams.
Boasting glimmering wide eyes and toothless grins, the first Faces of Hope captured the essence of infants born on 9/11. Now, ten years later, the same babies have grown into "big kids," full of life, love, and wisdom. And through their beautiful photos, inspirational quotes, and innocent drawings, they share their visions of how to contribute to this world.
This is a poignant collection, especially for those who were old enough to remember the events of 9/11 or were affected personally by the horrific acts of terrorism. Released just in time for the 10 year anniversary, this is a collection that will touch many hearts.
