11 years passed … but never forgotten.
In October of 2001 Sir Paul McCartney organized a benefit honoring the lives lost during the horrific events that occurred in NYC on 9/11/2001.
After a slew of other famous and inspirational acts, Sir Paul closed out his Concert for New York City with Beatles classic Let It Be, giving a musical nod to all the surviving responders — firemen, policemen — who made some civil sense out of the immediate chaos that followed the Twin Tower attacks (above)
Thanks to these men and women, and their brothers and sisters who gave their lives attempting to rescue citizens in danger, the people of NYC were allowed to grieve their losses in a safe, organized atmosphere.
To all the lives lost during the events of that day, and to all those who continue to experience senseless violence on a mass scale due to reasons such as politics, greed, religion etc., we honor you, and may your stories serve as inspiration for peaceful coexistence.
