There is no doubt in anyone's mind that September 11 will live on forever in the hearts and minds of all who witnessed that horrible day. And with each step we take toward healing, an undeniable importance is placed on the need to know. People ache to hear the stories of those who survived and the heroes who were only doing a job. While a great deal has been said about the men, the emergency workers, firefighters, and police officers who so quickly became the new American heroes, little has been said about the women heroes of what has become known as Ground Zero. But all that has changed with Women at Ground Zero, a new book by award-winning journalist and EMT worker Susan Hagen and social worker Mary Carouba.
