Why Must We Die?

Today is the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. I commemorate it every year. My two most important blog posts about the subject are from 2008 and 2009. I said all I needed to say about that day in these two posts, please feel free to comment them. This year, I decided again to commemorate it with a song, which is more eloquent than my words could be. It is from the McGarrigle sisters. Why Must We Die? was written a few years before 9/11, it could have been written for it. It is a very sad song, about how absurd is death and uncomplete life often is. Sad, but beautiful. It is fitting to remember those whose lives have been taken by religious fanaticism, also to remember how own mortality.

That was a sad day we will never forget.

It's a beautiful song to convey the senseless sadness of that awful day, and a lovely tribute Guillaume.
