About this title

Synopsis:

In FIGHTING BACK, Deena Burnett (widow of Flight 93 hero Tom Burnett) tells the story of how she fought back to find purpose and joy in her life again, after her husband was killed on that fateful day. Her story demonstrates how each of us can move forward through the hardships of life and have a positive impact on others through the belief that at some point in our lives, we are all called on to be heroes. Deena uses the actions of the passengers of Flight 93 and her own life as examples to re-define our concept of heroism and demonstrate the power of everyday heroes who do the right thing at the right time, no matter how big or small. Deena's story compels us as readers to look at our own lives and realize we each have a choice. If we choose the right way and react positively to the circumstances in which we find ourselves, we can all be transformed into everyday heroes. FIGHTING BACK will encourage you. It will make you laugh. It will cause you to cry. It will touch your heart.
