Billy Joel's "Miami 2017". Its about New York being left in ruins, but the people still going on and keeping strong. The true spirit of NYC.

K, Boston

I saw a surreal piece of art in my travels. It was a painting of the WTC buildings in peril with a giant bald eagle hovering above. He was embracing these buildings in the safety of his wings. For a moment in time, it's as if my heart stopped. I was so awed by this painting because of what it represented. It was if America's majestic symbol of our country came to save us all. It was an extremely comforting feeling.

Songs that comforted me are Bruce Springsteen's My City of Ruins, and U2's Walk On. They are both songs about rising above it and getting on with life.

Cara, Newton

The Beatles song 'Yesterday' offered me a degree of comfort immediately following the collapse of the World Trade Center. When the Spanish channel kept showing all those gas soaked bodies dropping from the sky, all I could think of to ease the pain of the moment was September 10th... or at the time... 'yesterday'.

Vern , Dorchester, MA

The Park, by Uriah Heep I ended up arranging it for and performing it with my a cappella group in memoriam.

Amy, Cambridge
