Media - Remembering 9-11: Brothers Here
In the days that followed September 11th, the terrifying realization that
our world had changed touched all Americans. Regardless of who you spoke to,
each person was shocked and deeply effected.
However, in the face of this terrible shift in our world, I began to witness
something truly amazing. The cold barrier between strangers, I had so often
seen, was somehow dissipating. There was a unity - a bond between people,
that in my life I had never expected to see. In some way, the world had
become warmer as so many Americans embraced the fact that we are indeed all
Americans - and we had been forced to remember what that really means.
I know that no one alive on that day will ever forget those sad images of
destruction and senseless waste. But as we recall that darkness, let us also
remember a time that we banded together - a time when it was easier to show
kindness - a time when a nation of strangers became brothers.
This song, that I produced on the 1 year anniversary of 9-11, is dedicated
to keeping the memory alive of a time when we were all a little bit closer.
