  3. Moving indeed. His musical tribute was fitting in both honoring those who lost their lives and uplifting us on such a somber day. The memories of that day have remained with me and being there and seeing the aftermath is something I will never forget. Wynton’s soulful playing moved me to tears and made me smile, thankful I am still here.
