Description
"This is a story of being called out of your happy, peaceful life to an extraordinary one. It is about heeding the call to be a helper and taking on the challenge of a lifetime. Fred Guttenberg is one such helper who comes from a family that finds ways, large and small, to change the world for the better. Fred was a successful businessman for whom family was a priority--as father, husband, son, and brother. But extraordinary circumstances would change the shape of Fred's world forever. Fred's brother Michael, one of the first responders to the World Trade Center on 9/11, was exposed to toxic substances there and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which he battled, with Fred's help and support, until his death in October 2017. Fred was still grieving the loss of his brother when he lost his daughter Jaime--one of seventeen victims brutally murdered--to another national tragedy. After the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Fred's life would be forever changed. At a vigil the day after the shooting, he was asked to speak. That was the start of a new public life for Fred. His anger and grief gave him a new purpose as an American advocate in the fight for public safety. Fred's story is an American story. it is an exemplar of how we can take loss, hurt, and pain and transform them into positive action. In this powerful and inspiring book, Fred shows how we can all become agents of positive change, as well as identify people who can join in and work alongside us. FIND THE HELPERS is an unforgettable story with an important reminder that you (yes, you reading this) can make this a better world."--Jacket flap.
