I saw this video today and it struck a chord with me as I’ve been reflecting on the history of this day. I love this song and although I hadn’t heard this cover before, I found it appropriate for the tone of the video.
It’s a little hard to watch (may not be for everyone). It stirred up emotions of hurt and pain as well as pride and gratitude for all those that showed up that day and went to work.
As we reflected on today’s events, each of my kids came home and shared what they learned in school. I’m grateful for all their teachers who made it a priority to teach them about it and for a preschool teacher who finds it important that even kids as young as three years old know what this special day represents and why we honor it each and every year.
Thanks for sharing the video. 9/11 is my birthday. I turned 31 on 9/11/01 and was pregnant with my twins. That day started off in Boston as a beautiful day- not a cloud in the sky. I celebrate my birthday each year, but it’s never been the same.
