I remember..

Do you remember where you were on 9/11? I was a newlywed pretty fresh out of college in 2001. I pulled into a place to have my oil changed and asked the young attendant how he was. He said "Ma'am I'm going to war, have you not heard about the towers?" He then explained to me what had happened and that he was going to do whatever he could to make sure it didn't happen again.

My heart is heavy when I think of the lives lost and dreams shattered that day. I've spent a lot of today listening to The Rising album, an inspiring example of Springsteen's brilliance. Into the fire is just a hauntingly beautiful song that salutes the brave souls that risk their lives every day to save others...
