It has been 11 years since the tragic and unforgettable events of America's most tremendous terrorist attack.
As I travel along Rt. 80 in New Jersey, headed for Manhattan, there is always a moment that I look at the breathtaking skyline of New York, and remember what it looked like in the days before September 11, 2001.
Released as a tribute to those who lost their lives, the heroes, and especially the family and friends who lost loved ones, Lori Michaels speaks to our heart with her song "Standing Here."
Before that empty feeling, experienced when you realize someone you love is gone for good, there are moments of shock and despair when you just can't comprehend that your life will go on, and theirs will not. Michaels brings us back to that day in 2001, and allows the tears to flow as we take a moment to remember -- the feeling, the sadness, the people.
"Standing Here" was released on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 and is available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/standing-here-a-tribute-to/id461040336
