I didn't find the references to designer shoes and clothing "distracting" or feel it made Lauren seem "shallow"...I think that's incredibly hypercritical and, frankly, petty. Lauren worked hard to achieve professional success, and with that, the finer things in life. If anything, her story illustrates that at the end of the day, we are all equal in terms of fate.
I'm glad Lauren survived that awful day...at least two of our high school alumni did not. It's wonderful to know that she not only survived but went on to thrive. Lauren truly is an amazing and inspiring woman.
I was so pleased to read Lauren's account of her recovery from the horrific injuries sustained on 9/11. It is the story of a woman who refuses to give up. She uses the dog-eat-dog determination she learned on Wall St. to deal with the pain of recovery.
I deal with my own health challenges. Lauren Manning is my hero and role-model. When I feel like I want to have a pity-party, I imagine Lauren. I pull myself up by my boot straps and move forward. Thanks Lauren!
