On this of all days, tragedy should be free of politics, but of course it’s not. That, more than any other fact, is why September 11 is such a heartbreaking day. The deaths on our soil are nothing next to the opportunity some of our “leaders” saw in them, and how a cowed, craven and vulgarized media enabled the appropriation of what rightly belongs to us all.
With that in mind, “Keep Me From Harm” seems the perfect tonic for the regret I feel and our lost chance at national unity. It’s a beautiful, calming ballad from a North London trio you’ve no doubt never heard of. But you’ll keep coming back to the song, or more aptly, it will somehow find you.
“Keep me from harm/mean everything to me/and I’ll go gladly/into your arms”
