- Song: My City of Ruins by Bruce Springsteen
- Reason: Although the title suggests a lack of hope about a place, being in "ruins," the words show the power of the human spirit, and how "with these hands" we will "rise up." After 9/11/01, this song brought me great comfort. More recently, it has touched my heart in so many ways as I watch my beloved home, the Jersey Shore, struggle to rebuild after SuperStorm Sandy.
