"Hole in the World" as written by and Don Henley Glenn Frey....
There's a hole in the world tonight
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
There's a hole in the world tonight
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow

They say that anger is just love disappointed
They say that love is just a state of mind
But all this fighting over who will be anointed
Oh how can people be so blind

There's a hole in the world tonight
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
There's a hole in the world tonight
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow

Oh they tell me there's a place over yonder
Cool water running through the burning sand
Until we we learn to love one another
We never reach the promised land

There's a hole in the world tonight
There's a cloud of fear and sorrow
There's a hole in the world tonight
Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song, that has a place closer to my heart than 9/11. I'm not American, and I was not affected personally by the events of that day (I am in no way saying it as not a horrible day, but I have no personal ties there at all).

    It is such a fitting song in this world of ours today... We're not accpeting, and until we are, we will not reach the 'promised land'.
