Here I am on the right, with Abby Carter, esteemed author of Alchemy of Loss, a brilliant book depicting Abby's loss of her husband Aaron Dack in the World Trade Center tradegy on September 11th, 2001 and her many victories in living through her pain, and that of her children. Somehow Abby adeptly weaves humor into the book such that it is not only readable, everyone I've given a copy to describes it as an absolute page turner, often reading it in one sitting, because of it's power and passion.
If Barack Obama can defy the terrific odds of being raised by his grandmother instead of a nuclear family, graduate Harvard magna cum laude, become a community organizer in Chicago in 1985, serve Illinois as their Jr. Senator from 1996-2004, win their US Senate seat from 2005-2008, and later outsmart, outrun, and outfundraise Hillary Clinton to become the Democratic nominee, and ultimately win the prize of the United States of America's first black President, then we women can surely push past our resistance to learning about our money. By comparison...well there really IS no comparison, period.
