In this book, written in a unique and poetic style, Lindsay Keane tells her very personal story of healing after sexual assault. She was victimized in high school and originally dealt with the trauma through denial. This caused her pain to seep out in various ways throughout the years (PTSD, Depression, Toxic relationship cycles, etc.). Eventually, her experiences led her to seek healing and face her problems head on. Her journey eventually brings her to a place where she is able to find acceptance of her trauma and all of the ways it changed the course of her life. She finally completes the journey from denial, victimhood, and ultimately to the mindset of survivor. As stated by Lindsay in the book's preface:" Healing is a process less about a destination than it is about maintaining hope, finding acceptance and the will to continue the journey. It is my greatest wish that readers will find this hope, acceptance, and renewed strength through my sharing." If you or someone you know has experienced the trauma of sexual assault, this book could be a true aid in healing and finding hope.
From a World War II concentration camp to the Korean War to the White House, this is the story of Tibor “Teddy” Rubin, the only Holocaust survivor ever to receive a Medal of Honor... After being captured by Nazis and living through a year in the Mauthausen concentration camp, young Hungarian immigrant Tibor Rubin arrived in America, penniless and barely speaking English. In 1950, he volunteered for service in the Korean War. After numerous acts of heroism, including single-handedly defending a hill against enemy soldiers, rescuing a wounded comrade amid sniper fire, and commandeering a machine gun, he was captured and spent two and a half years in captivity. Still, it wasn’t until 2005, when Tibor was seventy-six, that he received the Medal of Honor from President George W. Bush—making the former Hungarian refugee the only Holocaust survivor to earn America’s highest military distinction. Drawing on eyewitness accounts and extensive interviews, Single-Handed is the inspiring account of the life of Tibor “Teddy” Rubin, a stirring portrait of a true American hero.
The true story behind the events that inspired the major motion picture Only the Brave. A "unique and bracing" (Booklist) first-person account by the sole survivor of Arizona's disastrous 2013 Yarnell Hill Fire, which took the lives of 19 "hotshots"--firefighters trained specifically to battle wildfires.Brendan McDonough was on the verge of becoming a hopeless, inveterate heroin addict when he, for the sake of his young daughter, decided to turn his life around. He enlisted in the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a team of elite firefighters based in Prescott, Arizona. Their leader, Eric Marsh, was in a desperate crunch after four hotshots left the unit, and perhaps seeing a glimmer of promise in the skinny would-be recruit, he took a chance on the unlikely McDonough, and the chance paid off. Despite the crew's skepticism, and thanks in large part to Marsh's firm but loving encouragement, McDonough unlocked a latent drive and dedication, going on to successfully battle a number of blazes and eventually win the confidence of the men he came to call his brothers.Then, on June 30, 2013, while McDonough--"Donut" as he'd been dubbed by his team--served as lookout, they confronted a freak, 3,000-degree inferno in nearby Yarnell, Arizona. The relentless firestorm ultimately trapped his hotshot brothers, tragically killing all 19 of them within minutes. Nationwide, it was the greatest loss of firefighter lives since the 9/11 attacks. Granite Mountain is a gripping memoir that traces McDonough's story of finding his way out of the dead end of drugs, finding his purpose among the Granite Mountain Hotshots, and the minute-by-minute account of the fateful day he lost the very men who had saved him. A harrowing and redemptive tale of resilience in the face of tragedy, Granite Mountain is also a powerful reminder of the heroism of the people who put themselves in harm's way to protect us every day.
