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?
Art? My beautiful wife took a picture of me crying while watching the television news coverage last september. We've since framed the photograph, and now display it proudly in our living room.
U2's "Stuck in the Moment" & "Where the Streets Have No Name" and Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind" seemed to capture the moment best. Enrique's "Hero" just happened to be released then, but I think it was overplayed (along with "God Bless America"). Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" (Proud to be an American) was helpful, too.

The Song "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias, it reminded me of all the firefrighter, police, emt who helped or tried to help rescue the people who were in the World Trade Center.
