SG - I've just read your essay. Quite fantastic and very emotional. Obviously a huge connection with regards to the song but its linkage with such a BIG topic....

Thanks...truly humbling....

Thank you all for your very kind thoughts. It was a song and album that I have wanted to pay tribute to for a long time now. I am not a writer by profession so it took quite awhile but I am so happy I got the chance to do it for @U2's great Like A Song series. I am really happy it touched the readers too. It meant even more to me as it was published a few days after Congress voted down health care benefits for first responders in NY. It makes me happy to see that they finally passed it so those who stayed for months to find the remains of the victims for the families will get the care they deserve as they are getting sick from toxins that were in the air. It was dedicated to them too. SG
