  • Flood. House fire. Earthquake. Tornado. Hurricane. The common bond tying these disasters together is the response: the American Red Cross will be there.

    "No one can predict when the next river will flood or the next storm will hit. No one can foresee the next threat to the nation's health. What is predictable is that we will face such threats and emergencies, and that the American Red Cross will be there to offer help and hope."

    "My husband is a native of the Kentucky mountains, a true hater of poetry and all things literary. Without my knowledge, he read this little book and loved it. He shook it in my face and said, 'You ... better write a good review of this book because it's SPECIAL.' He's right. This book is special in so many ways I can't express adequately in a review."
