BH Song memorial for September 11 (75* d) RE: Song memorial for September 11 05 Sep 02

I am not a Christian, but I will say that Amazing Grace--to me--is the most meaningful of hymns. It is a song of peace and has evolved into a non sectarian piece.

I would add that the changing of the word "wretch" to "soul" by Paul Robeson made the song just perfect for me. As Robeson said; "...we are not wretches but human souls". When---not if--I go I want that played---and that version.

But as a previous writer noted---whatever brings you peace and serenity is what you should sing, hear, or do whatever you will.

A final though----have we now replaced 12/7 with 9/11. The tragedies mount do they not? And not just in this land.
