Wind Beneath My Wings

Martha, Arlington

I too found U2's "All that you leave behind" particularly moving- sometimes comforting, and time other times accentuating the painful feelings brought on by 9/11. Touch of Grey by the Dead has always been a comforting song for me in times of distress with its uplifting melody and "We will survive, we will get by" refrain.

Tony, Jamaica Plain

Nothing can truly comfort in a situation like 9/11 but I do think I can identify with the song "Superman" (singer's name escapes me) because even heros can dream...

In Newton, Newton

I was numb after the attacks. A former co-worker of mine was on Flight 11 and the priest who married my cousin and his wife was on the second plane. I also had friends who barely escaped the WTC and the Pentagon. I was numb from disbelief, numb from anger, and numb from sorrow for all those who had lost someone. Oddly enough, it was a song -- Land of Hope and Dreams by Bruce Springsteen -- that put an end to my numbness. That song meant to me a number of things that helped me sort out my feelings. For me, it represented the reasons why the attacks were perpetrated -- because this IS the land of hope and dreams and they are jealous of us and what we have. It also reminded me that we WILL overcome these acts and our way of life will go on because, as the song says, "Dreams will not be thwarted" ... and this American Dream will never be thwarted by anyone, by any means.

Jon, Stoughton
