Kevin Sings the News: 'Together'

Patch troubadour Kevin Trudo looks back on the 10 years since the 9/11 attacks, and urges us to remember.

The 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks dominated Patch’s coverage last week. In ceremonies across our region, people paid tribute to the nearly 3,000 who lost their lives on that day, and took time to reflect and remember.

Watching and reading that coverage had an impact on Patch troubadour Kevin Trudo. We’re going to let his song, called “Together,” speak for itself this week. Lyrics are reprinted below. For more on Kevin Trudo, check out his Facebook page.

 

Together

We all remember where we were
Did our mental inventory
Who do we know in New York or out in DC?

Our friends couldn't answer the phone
All we got, we got from TV
But the words and the pictures and thoughts just wouldn't agree

For days there was ash in our lives
Just a haze watching body counts rise
And the palpable absence of planes in American skies 

And that time with that sorrow and fear
Was a time that brought people together
And now when we seem so divided
We need to remember 



And the kids seemed so young but

Those planes didn't tear us apart
We're stronger and I'm hoping better
I don't care that we all disagree
Let's keep it together
Let's all remember

Very poignant - "Those planes didn't tear us apart. We're stronger & I'm hoping better." From your lips to God's ears. . . bless us all. . . Thank you, Kevin.
