What helped you following September 11?

Following the attacks on September 11, many have looked to art, in all its forms, for consolation. Did art help comfort you following the attacks? If so, which piece and how did it help?

Whenever I hear the song "Hero" by Mariah Carey, I think of those poor people on that flight that crashed in Pennsylvania.

There is no way a person could make "sense" of the 9/11 attacks. This question is foolish. I didn't lose anyone close to me that day.....but my heart goes out to those who did.

None of those works of art has helped "make sense of the attacks". To think that they could is absurd. One can only seek to remember the victims and place value on every moment in which we are privileged to exist on this Earth.

Yes art did comfort me after September 11th. I have framed picture of my boyfriend Tom that I have over my computer at home. I spent months decorating it and everytime I got sad I looked it and it cheered me up.

Comfort from art would be very pacifistic at best. There is only one way a true American would get comfort from the loss of lifes and twin towers. That would be comfort from knowing that the perpetrators have been removed from this planet.
