ANNANDALE, Va., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Susan Scott Teachey offers a touching tribute to the tragedy turned to patriotism and heroism after the Sept. 11 attacks in her new compilation of photographs, "The 9/11 Patriot: Viewpoint of an Average American Girl" (now available through AuthorHouse).
Chronicling the reconstruction of the Pentagon during the year after the attacks, this stunning collection of 209 full-color photos represents the efforts of real-life heroes in the months following the tragedy. It also represents the events through the lens - and the eyes - of an everyday American citizen. Teachey shares candid, genuine portraits of the reconstruction efforts through these photos.
Teachey says this book will act as a reminder to future generations who will have no recollection of the heartache endured by the nation on that infamous day. "This book can be passed from generation to generation to keep the memory of those lost on September 11, 2001 forever, particularly because of the photography," she says. "These photographs are images that should be remembered and that can never be retaken. These expressions of patriotism are gone and will never be erected again. Let's never forget."
She also hopes the images will renew the national sense of unity that spread through the country following the attacks. "Once you read this book, you will connect with the renewed, or first-realized, feeling of patriotism for our country," she says.
In an effort to contribute to the legacy of the heroes and victims of Sept. 11, Teachey plans to donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of this book to the Americas 911 Foundation, a scholarship fund; Rolling Thunder(R), an organization dedicated to raising POW/MIA awareness and helping American veterans from all wars, past, present and future; and other organizations supporting troops and their families.
Born in Richmond, Va., Teachey's family history in the United States dates back to 1709 in the town of Teachey, N.C. A member of her ancestry has fought in every American war. She is an avid philanthropist, and donates her time and funds to a number of causes dedicated to Pentagon victims and their families, children, soldiers and veterans. She continues to live in Virginia where she works as a graphic designer and owns a small studio. "The 9/11 Patriot" is her first book.
