Today is the 7th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. I have a stack of books that I want to review, including some really cute children's books, but while sitting at my desk my radio suddenly went silent. I realized they were observing a moment of silence for the victims of September 11. The silence was then followed by our National Anthem. I felt a swell of pride as I heard the music and my thoughts turned towards books on American patriotism, heroes, and the like.
Have you read a book or several books that have filled you with feelings of patriotism and love for your country -- be it the United States or somewhere else in the world? If so, what was it?Please leave a comment and let me know which and why. It doesn't have to be current history or current heroes, it could be heroes from history too.
