In the pages of this book, you will meet some of the people whose hard work propels a critical social and economic force--the aviation industry--and who on the morning of September 11 were suddenly thrust into front-line positions in the battle to put our nation back on its feet. For many of these men and women, and their families, the pain and after-effects of 9/11 are exceptionally acute, but their stories will serve as touchpoints for the thousands of people whose journey to closure is still ongoing

This powerful and ultimately uplifting book not only honors the heroes of September 11th, it also offers common ground to those in search of meaning and purpose in a changed world--both in and outside of the air travel industry--and gives Americans in all walks of life something they still seek five years after 9/11: the courage and strength to move forward.
