Marian Fontana was an accomplished comedienne, actress, and writer long before September 2001. Her sense of humor helped get her through her grief, despite her relentless tears. It helped as she became active on behalf of the 9/11 families, fighting with others against ridiculous political issues that surfaced. But this is not a fun book to read. Still, less we forget where we've been, it's so important to stop occasionally and be reminded of those who still grieve every day of their lives for loved ones and friends who perished on 9/11. Especially those who willingly walked into those twin towers trying to save the lives of others - because THAT, in my humble opinion, may be the truest picture of the American spirit.
I learned so much reading this book. Next time you're feeling under the weather, give me a call. I'll be happy to loan it to you.
