Amber from San Francisco, CaI always suspected that this song was written about 9/11 but I was never positive until I read this page. Such a beautiful song, but did you expect anything less from Sarah? She is truly one of the greatest and most talented artists of our time and I have always been a fan of hers.
Kami from New York City, NyI love this song. Sarah McLachlan made a great video. I knew that it's good to give money. I never thought of taking movey I'd spend on like a shopping spree and using it on something good
Nader Balata from Toronto, CanadaSarah had said in many interviews that this song is a response to the 911 attacks. Incidentally, if you watch the video it seems like a message about the worsening conditions of Africa.
Eric from Brantford, CanadaWhen asked why she wrote this song, I have heard a number of stories from Sarah. The most obvious is the 9/11 attacks on New York, but there's still more. I think it might have something to do with her own life.
Andrew from Ny, Nyi lost 2 friends in the towers. healing is still being done. songs like theis, and the boss's, really help. thank u!
