Shortly after 9-11, my son, who was 9 years old at the time, came home from school and doodled at the piano. Mind you, before 9-11, his beautiful artwork of colors was now only black-and-white. His improvisation led me to the piano. It was so tender--we wrote it out, I added verses and kept his music as the 'chorus' section. It became, 'The World In Our hands', which is now published by the Hal Leonard Corporation. Many school choruses have performed it, and it is a tender tribute to our Patriotism and love of our heroes.
