A collection of essays by distinct individuals on winners of the Profile in Courage Award given by the Kennedy Library Foundation and are a cross section of America's heroes. One award was granted to the Heroes of September 11.
From Gerald Ford unpopular decision to pardon Richard Nixon to the resilient John Lewis who was literally beat up on the Petus Bridge in Selma, Alabama.
What I find most useful in this book is it gives you a good sense and background of individuals of which you may have heard their name but were not familiar with what exactly they did.
It is a good read, but not all the selections hold interest. I'd recommend particular excerpts for good classroom reading. I also commend the acknowledgement of politicians, leaders, and activists on both local and global levels.
