April 19, 1995. The building I'm in shakes. A muffled explosion. Within minutes we are gathered around the TV. The helicopter comes around and for the first time we see it.

I really didn't think I could ever feel that low again.

I've basically been numb since Sep. 11, 2001. Last night my wife propped me up when I desperately needed it. I went and grabbed "London Calling" to listen to "I'm Not Down". I've turned to this song numerous times in the past to lift my spirits. I didn't think of the lyrics when I went to grab it, I just knew it would help me...

Quote:
If it's true a rich man leads a sad life
that's what they say, from day to day
Then what do all the poor do with their lives
on judgment day, with nothing to say?

I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
but I'm not down, no I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, no I'm not down

On my own I faced a gang of jeering in strange streets
When my nerves were pumping and I
Fought my fear in, I didn't run
I was not done

I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
but I'm not down, no I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, no I'm not down

'Cause I've lived that kind of day
When none of your sorrows will go away
It goes down and down and hit the floor
Down and down and down some more
Depression
But I know there'll be some way
When I can swing everything back my way
Like skyscrapers rising up
Floor by floor, I'm not giving up

So you rock around and think that
You're the toughest
In the world, the whole wide world
But you're streets away from where
It gets the roughest
You ain't been there

I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
but I'm not down, no I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, no I'm not down
