"I Was Here" was written by songwriter extraordinaire Diane Warren and placed on Beyonce's album as the 2nd to last song. In its simplicity, it achieves what many other Beyonce ballads fall short of doing, namely, hit a very personal & emotional soft spot in the human heart and leave the listener with a sense of poignancy and hope. It is because this effect is carried out with such efficiency, I am sure, that ABC, in their coverage of the 9/11 10th Anniversary, chose the record as part of a beautiful montage of the new memorial & its visitors during the past few days. I hope you all enjoy. God bless the many men & women who returned to their Creator on that day. We will never forget you.
