Whitney Houston — “The Star-Spangled Banner”
(from Whitney: The Greatest Hits) — The Star Spangled Banner - Whitney - The Greatest Hits

I really can’t abide pompous patriotism in any form, but it feels important to remember that that our flag was still there aren’t just hollow words, aren’t just empty images; they are, rather, the climactic symbols of survival, of resilience, of pride and faith in an ideal that is not only real but reachable. And on this tenth anniversary of a day that few will be eager to recall and relive, it feels equally important to remember that humans can still dream, that voices can still soar, and that music can still heal.
