Bruce Springsteen – The Rising

A firefighter is working on the remains of the terrorist-destroyed World Trade Center in this 2002 Grammy-winning song. Can we rise above the tragedy? The religious imagery of the song could suggest renewal and rebirth: the 9/11 attacks like Good Friday and Jesus crucified… and the Mary in the lyrics greeting God’s Son resurrected. But also Easter is celebrated annually by Christians, to remember something that should mean more to them than anything, much like Americans will forever commemorate 9/11.
