Hard to believe it's been 14 years since the 9-11 attack. In the weeks that followed I dealt with the emotions I felt by trying to express it thru music. On my songs page you'll find a link to "Till the End". I remember sitting at the piano and this song just poured out of me. I had heard the reports of people in the towers and on the plane that went down in Pennsylvania calling their loved ones to say goodbye. I heard of the heroic actions of the first responders and the firemen who rode the buildings down when they collapsed.

I tried to see this tragedy from the perspective of those who died and their loved ones. I never tried to promote the song in any way. It was just my way of dealing with what I was feeling at the time.

I hope we never forget the events of that day and how it brought us together as Americans once again.
