My first concert, Skynyrd 91 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, I was 10. Vivid memories of hearing and seeing a band of individuals brought together by tragedy and triumph still, at 32, emanate my consciousness. The sea of lighters casting their flickering flame among an ocean of people transfixed by every lyric to "Free Bird" sung by Johnny Van Zant made every sense so vibrantly receptive that even today and probably until I die I'll be able to go back to that night. Thank you Johnny for continuing on, making the music, giving tribute, not stopping, not succumbing to the pain, turning tragedy into triumph. America is a better place because of it. Music can mend, heal, inspire, give strength.
