“Melody for a Fallen Hero” – 911 Tribute Version


As the anniversary of 911 approaches I’ve begun to feel the emotions of that day. I broke down several times tonight while re-doing this video making it more fitting to what my original intentions were. This is a tribute to the greatest hero of all time. melody911He was brave enough to sacrifice his life and the lives of the passengers of United Arlines Flight 93 for the greater good of the United States of America. There is no entertainer, sports figure, or politician
who can even compare to the heroism of this man who acted as few on this earth ever would. I’ve driven by the entrance to the memorial site in Shanksville, Pennsylvannia countless times. Each time I feel it. We have the greatest country in the world and I for one will live the rest of my days remembering the bravery of an ordinary man who became extraordinary in a sitution where there was no other choice. Be proud of this nation that has given so much to so many.
