Sweets, I'm okay. I'm okay. Don't worry. It's not my building, said Kristen Breitweiser's husband on the phone from his office in the second tower. The call ended abruptly, and Kristen stared at the television in horror as the second plane hit, and her life, and her country, changed forever.

This is the deeply personal, often shocking, and ultimately inspirational story of a woman left to pick up the pieces of a life shattered by terrorism. With no husband by her side or father for her child, Kristen somehow found the strength within herself to embark on a journey that would lead first to the creation of the 9/11 Commission and then to her role as one of the country's most outspoken activists and critics of the current administration.

    " This was an interesting look into the life as a 9/11 widow who worked so hard to bring to pass the 9/11 commission. It was fascinating and sad to see how the government works. "

    " This book isn't usually my kind of read, but it was very good. Even though I didn't know anyone who died in the 911 tragedy, this book helped me to understand those who did lose someone and realize that their struggle for answers and justice shouldn't have been such an arduous journey. "
