The Sound of Silence
Today, I have thoughts and feelings similar to those that I imagine most Americans feel on this particular date each year; but there was an element of shock added this morning, as it has been a full decade since the September 11th terrorist attacks.
I thought I'd pass along a clip from today's 10th Anniversary Memorial Concert that really moved me. Paul Simon's haunting performance of "The Sound of Silence," if nothing else, conveys the power of music. This song is from the Sounds of Silence album that he released with Art Garfunkel in 1965. "The Sound of Silence" speaks to a staggering national tragedy that took place in 2001, and continues to resonate with us ten years later in 2011.
I hope that everyone is able to find some peace today.
