    NOT ONLY AMERICANS

    The book is a great example of too much patriotism. But not only americans come together in times of crises, i think its just human nature. I have given people food in Ethiopia though i am not ethiopian nor american. I am not negating the fact that their were heroes in September 11. What i am getting at is there was a thin line drawn seperating americans by their ethnic background. Most Arab Americans or other ethnic groups were looked down upon after september 11. I am certain there were american fireman of mexican background, policemen of irish background that rose as heroes. So what does American mean today? Is it to live in a democracy? Where is the democracy in America today? September 11 will always be a sad day for America like Nagasaki & Hiroshima. I think the book should have also kept a clear eye that America must come to terms with the realities and hardships it has always caused in the world. While the book discovered American Heroes, the world discovered American Heroes that died because America was blind.

    THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!

    When I first saw it advertised on AOL I clicked on the link to check it out. I was brought to tears from just reading an excerpt. I received the book in the mail today and immediately began reading it. I have never been one to sit and read, instead using my free time to be online. This book however will be one that I read over and over again. It is a true sentiment to what it means to be 'Proud To Be An American!' Thank you and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    Required reading

    The hardest book I ever read, not because of the way it was written, but the way it made me feel about America and Americans. (It's not easy to read through teary eyes.) After I saw the ad for it on AOL, and read a few clips, I ordered 7 copies for Christmas presents, but gave them out at Thanksgiving. Thank you AOL and Barnes and Noble! This book should be required reading for all high school English classes. God Bless America!

    God Bless America and 'U' = America

    Mindboggeling... When you start reading you can't put it away. You read, you cry, you wipe the tears, you read somemore. This goes on throughout the entire book.

    Makes you believe in our country again!

    This book is truly one of the most heart-wrenching and inspiring things to have come out of the tragedy of 9/11. I always knew in my heart that America was still a land of greatness, of people willing to go to any extreme to help someone, and a county of people proud of their country and their heritage. The writing is not always perfect, but that day, none of us were ourselves, we were stunned, angered and emotionally torn between anguish over the loss of life and the basal need to react to the hatred we were confronting for the first time in many of our lives. IF you can read this without tears in your eyes, a lump in your throat and a feeling of extreme pride over the people's feelings, then you really need to see a good doctor, because you have to be dead! Thank you AOL for making this available to us, and for helping us heal.

    Reminder

    Thank you so much for this beautiful book. For days after 9/11, I spent hours reading the messages from fellow Americans. Since then, I have often recalled the touching comments. I truly appreciate the opportunity to have this book as a reminder of the love, strength, and compassion of our wonderful Nation.
