In that music is always my “go-to” for emotional release, this clip of Bette Midler singing ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ at a memorial at Yankee Stadium shortly after the horrific bombings on 9/11 encapsulates so much of what we felt then and still feel today.
Her “thank you” at the 4:30 mark say so much on behalf of so many.
As only Bette could deliver…
And from the Twitterverse today – two statesmen who reflected on how the world saw today, and one who made it about himself.
As we remember those we lost on 9/11, we also remember the spirit of unity and togetherness that defined the weeks and months after. On this day of service, I’m reflecting on all those still working to embrace that spirit, today and every day. https://t.co/y8x9PVcwDl
