  13. 13. “Give Them Wings & Let Them Fly” "Powerfully written with simple honesty, profoundly healing with its  compassionate message of hope, it breaks through the boundaries of  those who have lost a child and embraces all those who have experienced  the deep pain associated with losing a loved one with tenderness and  understanding. For those whose souls ache from the pain of loss, 'Give  Them Wings...' is a must read, a respectful, spiritual 'road‐side assistance'  in the journey back to Him". ‐ Ann Jillian “Kymberli Brady's comforting words and  thoughts of profound loss and love will be a  blessing to anyone who's lost a child.“ ‐ LeeZa Gibbons "The thoughts and bits of wisdom found  in "Give Them Wings and Let Them Fly"  weave a blanket of love and assurance  that can bring comfort to all of us who  have been touched by the loss of a child.  Thank you Kymberli.“  ‐ Marie Osmond “Kymberli Brady seeks to provide hope for  those who have suffered the special pain and  grief associated with the ultimate loss of a child. If you have lost a child, or know  someone who has, then 'Give Them Wings and Let Them Fly' is a highly  recommended source of solace and strength for grieving parents, friends, and  family.“  ‐The Midwest Book Review

Along with contributing four stories to the project, I was given special clearance  via police escort onto Ground Zero following the collapse of the Twin Towers in  an effort to shoot the photos that were used on the cover of the book. “911: The Day America Cried' immortalizes the raw emotions and heartfelt  feelings of Americans all across our great nation in the aftermath of the tragedy  and pays tribute to the indomitable American spirit." ‐ Tina L. Miller, Editor in Chief  All royalties derived from the sale of “911, The Day America Cried” are donated to the Todd Beamer Foundation. "…You will be especially touched by the short stories written by the children.  Their unique perspective on the events of September 11 reminds us that today's  children are tomorrow's heroes, capable of positively impacting our world for  the good of others."  ‐ Doug MacMillan, Executive Director of The Todd M. Beamer Foundation.
