4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. David Hulchanski on April 29 2007
Format: Paperback
Why do those who can make a difference fail to act? Street nurse Cathy Crowe and the remarkable individuals she introduces us to make clear what needs to be done. Their formula should be ours: witness + honesty + speaking out = the right thing to do. We have in this book a powerful and moving series of first-hand witness statements. The rest is up to us.
