Chicken Soup for the Soul of America: Stories to Heal the Heart of Our Nation

by Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Matthew E. Adams

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 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.
