Her essay titled, “Why Are You Waiting?” was chosen for inclusion in this extraordinary Chicken Soup Collection dedicated to the Soul of America.

 

Rave Reviews For Chicken Soup For The Soul Of America

"Ironically I finished reading this book on the 9th anniversary of the events of September 11, on which the stories writen in the book were about. From the heart of the people who witnessed what happened the stores go from feelings of people when they heard the news, to reactions, to America responding, the world responding, what is next and reflections. What was the response of people? To want to help in any way they could, to mourn those that died, but to show that America would stand strong, and would recover and fight back, not letting terrorism win. These stores are written by the average person, compiled together to show that yes America was struck by a great tragedy, but that it would survive." - Martha
 
"I laughed, cried and marveled as I read this book. I loved being able to read first-hand accounts of 9-11-01 from everyday citizens of NY. As an emergency worker, I can say that this book worked wonders for me in dealing with all of the traumatic emotions from that day. I plan to give many copies of this book to other emergency workers for Christmas. I hope another book with more stories in it comes out soon." - Krissy
