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?
U2's "Peace on Earth" from "All That You Can't Leave Behind." Well, the album as a whole, actually, too.

I feel the song by Sara Mclauglin-I believe it is called "The Arms of the Angel" gives me comfort because the words say that we always have an angel who wathces over us and comforts us in bad times. It also conveys the message how we have "angels" who are always there to help us through times of crisis, such as the firefighters and police officers and volunteers who are heroes and some of them lost their lives trying to save other people. We all need some kind of comfort in our daily lives, now that we know that they will never be the same again.

I lost no one, yet no piece of art or music "helps." No musician, reporter, or politician wrapping themselves in the flag "helps." I still think of those poor people every day. I will not feel better until we destroy all those who hate us for no reason.
