I knew no one who died in the towers, airplanes or Pentagon that fateful day, but I feel as though "The Legacy Letters" has changed that.
Each letter starts with a brief bio of the person lost that morning. Who their parents, siblings, spouses and children were. Where they were that morning and in what capacity. You feel like you know a bit of the special person's background. Then you read these beautiful letters - from a parent, spouse, child, niece or nephew, or other loved one.
Though I usually plow through books, this is one that I can only read in small doses. Each writing is so beautiful, but so painful at the same time. You feel the broken hearts and loving memories of the writers. You become incredibly sad but also admire the resilience of those who keep love alive and somehow move forward through the pain.
I can't imagine a better collection of tributes, so well compiled, written and presented.
Thank you "Tuesday's Children" for putting this collection together so that those of us not directly involved in the 9/11 tragedy could remember those lost in such a memorable way.
This book is the perfect antidote to those of us who haven't forgotten 9/11 but whose lives have gone on without the direct loss that the writers of "The Legacy Letters" have lived each day.
May God bless each and every one of the families who lost someone dear to them in the tragedy of 9/11 and may we as a nation never forget those who perished or take for granted the freedom that we enjoy each day in the U.S.
