9/11

I try not to dwell on bad things that have happened, but the events of September 11th 2001 should ever be forgotten.

I’ve been guilty of it myself; on many of the years since that fateful day, I’ve not made the connection between the date and the event until very late at night.

But not this year.

I’ve posted this before, a long time ago, but it’s a beautiful collaboration between Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris, written from the perspective of someone trapped in one of the Towers, making their last ever phone call to a loved one.

One thought on “9/11”

  1. That is a beautiful song. Won’t ever forget that day – I was at home in the afternoon so saw the awfulness unfold live on tv. Can imagine there would have been many, many emotional phonecalls that day.
