A heart, a cross & a flag : America today by Peggy Noonan ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a book about love." So begins Peggy Noonan's enormously moving collection of her post-September 11 Wall Street Journal commentaries. On the morning of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Noonan began writing, and produced at least one essay every week through September 11, 2002. These candid, compassionate and sometimes heart-wrenching pieces are full of insights and observations picked up throughout the country--on experiencing the return of religious faith to a great modern city on how the events influenced our perceptions of what it means to live in New York, or to be a man, or to take part in a community. Taking her own, her city's and her country's pulse, she administered a welcome dose of humanity, affirmation and inspiration, quickly attracting a large and loyal readership. This first draft of history--a record, written on the ground, of what it felt like to be an American that day, and the days after--balances the immediacy of the tragedy with its broader meaning for our world. Noonan, the bestselling author of When Character Was King, brings to these articles her unsurpassed powers of description: walking on the streets and riding on the buses of Manhattan in the hours and days following the attack watching, along with most of the country, the televised reportage, public announcements, expert opinions and tributes witnessing our "post-incident heartache" and anxiety, as well as the "spirited gaiety of New Yorkers at this time in history." By training our gaze on everyone from firemen, Catholic and Muslim mourners and the President to news anchors, bus drivers and school kids, these essays not only depict America in all its beautiful and diverse strengths but serve as an emblem of such. At once elegant and tough, elegiac and proud, outraged and tender, full of street smarts and down-home wisdom, this book will help Americans understand their emotional and intellectual responses to those devastating events. For everyone who felt scared, saddened, outraged and humbled but not defeated by the horror of that day, here is a balm and an apt tribute to what we lost and what we learned about ourselves.--Publisher description

When character was king : a story of Ronald Reagan by Peggy Noonan ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is twenty years--a full generation--since Ronald Reagan first walked into the White House & ignited a revolution. From the beginning, he enjoyed the American people's affection but now, as he approaches the end of his life, he has received what he deserved even more: their deep respect. What was the wellspring of his greatness? Peggy Noonan, bestselling author of the classic Reagan-era memoir What I Saw at the Revolution, former speechwriter, & now a columnist & contributing editor for The Wall Street Journal, argues that the secret of Reagan's success was no secret at all. It was his character--his courage, his kindness, his persistence, his honesty, & his almost heroic patience in the face of setbacks--that was the most important element of his success. The one thing a man must bring into the White House with him if he is to succeed, Noonan contends, is a character that people come to recognize as high, sturdy, & reliable. Noonan, renowned for her special insight into Ronald Reagan's history & personality, brings her own reflections on Reagan to bear in When Character Was King & discloses never-before-told stories from the former president's family, friends, & White House colleagues to reveal the true nature of a man even his opponents now view as a maker of big history. Marked by incisive wit & elegant prose, When Character Was King will enlighten & move readers
