In the immediate hours following the attacks on New York and Washington D.C., it was nearly impossible to express in words our sorrow, our anger, our emotions. However, this is what songwriters do for a living and through their songs our emotion was expressed and the story of our struggles through trying times, in the aftermath of 9/11, was chronicled for all time. Here are just a few of the songs that in my mind will always take me back to that date 11 years ago.
