Alan Jackson's Where were you When the World Stopped Turning.....says it all for me.

As far as songs go, I heard Land of Confusion play on September 12th and I think it sums up 9/11 perfectly. I also think Fragile by Sting is meaningful as well. In recent months, I have listened to the tribute songs by Toby Keith and Alan Jackson. I don't think is one piece of art that is more meaningful of the other, but I love seeing American flags everywhere. People have painted their cars, mailboxes, storefronts, even wearing makeshift lapel pins, all showing support and I think it's fantastic to see so much patriotism.

What comes to mind for me is not just a song but a concert. I had tickets for the John Mellencamp concert on September 13th at the Tweeter Center last year. I was debating whether or not to go. Was I being selfish going to a concert when our country was mourning? I am so glad that I decided to go because who better than John Mellencamp to lead us through an American pep rally of sorts that night. For the first time that week, people were able to sing and dance again but also stay true to the surge of patriotism we all felt. It was the most powerful concert experience I've ever had.

Metallica's "Don't tread on me"
