We’ve all send the images of 9/11. Even though they were hard to look at, we could not turn our eyes away. So I braced myself to read Bob’s book, not wanting to remember those images and experience the pain of 9/11 all over again. I intended to take just a minute to see how Bob began his book but got hooked on the first page and just kept reading.

Triumph Over Terror isn’t just a history lesson. It’s a book full of life lessons.

Tim Shoemaker, speaker and author of Super Husband, Super Dad, and the Co of Silence Series

Triumph Over Terror is Chaplain Bob Ossler’s reflections on the days after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Ossler spent 45 days in five tours at Ground Zero counseling heartbroken families of victims, and overworked and weary search and rescue teams, search and recover teams, construction workers, emergency services workers, and volunteers. This was an emotion-packed time for everyone.

Many communities host #NeverForget ceremonies in recognition of those who lost their lives in the disaster and those who served in the clean-up.
