Prayer Flags (9/11 tribute song)

Marc Farre

"Prayer Flags" was written and recorded immediately after the tragedy of 9/11 hit lower Manhattan. The lyrics and melody were born of the emotions of love and anguish embodied in the "MISSING" posters that cropped up everywhere near the site.

In its intimacy and understated intensity, “Prayer Flags” preserves in amber the energy of those numbing and painful days all New Yorkers lived through. The song was twice featured on National Public Radio, reprinted in two bestselling books, and shared widely across various media.

Marc composed this tribute song to the victims and their families—and to the compassionate people everywhere whose hearts opened wide in response to this unimaginable sorrow—in the hopes that it might help all of us heal the wounds of that tragic day.
