Awhile back, I was browsing Swell Season videos (clearly a favorite band of mine) on youtube. Glen Hansard, vocalist for The Swell Season, has always been an outstanding storyteller. I came across the accompanying video during my search. Hansard tells a story about an elderly woman he met in a hotel, and her special jacket. The woman lost her son in the World Trade Center attacks. The story is touching really. The moral behind her story is really twofold. First, don't be afraid to say what's really on your mind to someone you care about. I struggle with that constantly. Second, cherish your life and live it fully. There are probably more patriotic choices for today, but the story that introduces this song shows how September 11th effected us on a personal level. I hope you enjoy the story and song. It's a favorite.
