Judith by A Perfect Circle. It didn't help me make sense of anything, but it certainly is appropriate.

I think the most moving song is "In a New York Minute", by Don Henley. Listen to it...freaky... tony

Tony, Brookline

Alright, this is kinda silly, but oh well. About 2 days after the event, around my birthday, I was lying awake in bed as usual, listening to the radio. I tuned in to Kiss 108 FM, hoping to hear something, as the severe lack of music over the past 2 days was driving me crazy. The first song I heard made me burst into tears. This was a relative surprise, since I had not cried at all during the past days. The song was very simple. It was a Blessid Union of Souls song that I doubt I could even name. It had been spliced between verses with news flashes, sound clips, and even a cell phone call from a woman on one of the fated planes. I couldn't hold my emotions any longer. I must have cried for a good 15 minutes, but it helped to release my emotions and begin the process of recovery.

The remix version of Enya's "Only Time."

Diana, Barnstable

Where were you when the world stopped turning by Alan Jackson hits my feelings right on the head. It was perfect and so eloquently written. I found deep comfort in it. I also found comfort in "Arms of the Angels" by Sarah McLaughlin. Lastly I have to say that I found great comfort in "Be Not Afraid" a hymn... "Be Not Afraid.. I go before you always, come follow me and I will bring you rest."

Cindy, Quincy
