Here’s my Sept. 11, 2001 anthem:
USA Flag —
USA Flag/3,00 dead/USA Flag/It’s in my head
USA Flag/Is Raining down/USA Flag/Still around
It’s a tribute to the 3,000 people killed on that fateful day, with a focus on the Stars & Stripes as a symbol of the time. I came up with the chorus first, and then wrote a few verses about it. Just a few weeks after it happened, Jennifer traveled to China where she saw a trinket of the World Trade Center with flames coming out – some kind of combination souvenir and cigarette lighter decorated with Osama Bin Laden. I hope they didn’t sell. Can you believe that? What a horrible thing. Nearly all of the Sept. 11 hijackers and Osama Bin Laden all came from Saudi Arabia.
