For some reason, many of the photo slide shows that circulated online and by email were set to Enya's most recent song release at the time, a prayerful and contemplative piece. That will always deliver an immediate and concrete connection to that moment in time.

Shortly after 9/11-in October, I went to my college reunion. Our class lost a Firefighter (Engine 22-Manhattan). His former college band had a fundraiser in his honor and dedicated "Ripple"-as performed by the Greatful Dead-to him. It was great.

Agreed on the U2 - All that you can't leave behind. This album was very pertinent after the attacks, and gave you the feeling that life was going to go on, and things would get better. It was in my cd player in my car for a good month after the attacks, and will forever remind me of that period of my life.

No song or piece of art could even come close to helping me cope with the horror that took place that day. The suffering and horrible deaths of so many fine people at the expense of such monsters...

The song "Where were you" by Alan Jackson brings back memories of that day and reminds me that I was not and am not alone. We were sent home from work, or offered to stay with others at work. Three people in the small department I work in had a mother, a father and a sister at the Trade Center. Thankfully after a week all were accounted for. I was and am blessed to know that I don't have to deal with that event or the terrible financial state many of us find ourselves in the aftermath. Thanks Alan Jackson for a wonderful song.
