Stars aplenty gather in honor of those who perished on 9/11., 14 October 2001
Author: Christopher Ellis (cellis25@hotmail.com) from kalamazoo, michigan

This TV special is a true honor to watch as actors and musicians gather to show homage to those who died in the wake of terrorist attacks on America. The actors give shortened asides to describe the firefighters, policemen and innocent civilians who were involved in the catastrophic event of September 11, 2001. The various singers pour out heart-felt songs that eerily describe the terrorist act. Worth noting, Bruce Springsteen steals the show with his rendition of "My City's in Ruin".
