Mount Vernon, OH (PRWEB) August 14, 2006
"Help From the Homeland" is a snap-shot of how one community in Amerca's heartland responded with hope to the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
9/11 is a day that will be forever etched in the minds of Americans. Terrorism left every citizen in the country frozen with fear, spanning from the heart of the gravely affected metropolises of New York City and Washington D. C., and reaching to small towns everywhere that are the pulse of America.
Husband and wife team Micah and Carol Rubenstein chose to respond by contributing weekly articles to their local newspaper, articles that addressed the questions and uncertainties dominating the minds of Knox County, Ohio citizens and all Americans. The series was compiled into "Help From The Homeland," a book that takes the microscope off New York City and focuses on America’s Heartland, offering a unique, in-depth account of a rural Ohio community’s response to the horrific tragedy that changed our nation.
"Help From the Homeland" focuses on a myriad of topics, from immediate safety issues, to broader questions of how a person can help and begin to heal, and finally the state of American society. Some chapters highlight Knox County residents’ involvement with national affairs; others offer suggestions and tools to facilitate the healing
process for people of all ages, children to adults. Many articles examine the helpful, and sometimes harmful, influence of pop culture, from books and movies, to art and music, while also giving consideration to the healing power of religion. Other subjects include health and safety concerns, tolerance, service, and aspects of community and culture, among others. Wise and thought-provoking quotes are woven throughout the book, inviting readers to pause and ponder the significance of the themes.
"Help From The Homeland" illuminates the mindset of Americans in the weeks following September 11, focusing on the widespread effects that began in New York City and Washington D. C., and extended into the Heartland of America. Furthermore, it reveals the undaunted spirit of a small Ohio town as well as the entire American populace, determined people who refuse to be intimidated by terrorism.
