Chicken Soup For The Soul Of America

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.

I read this book in 2002, after the September 11th attacks. The stories in this book were so inspiring during a very trying time. Not only do we remember those who died that day, but we remember the survivors...and the stories in this book reflect that. Stories of true survivors!
