Bridgend-based Julie George is the JJ singing here with a debut song of encouragement for the city of New York post September 11th. There are two mixes, one with a dance groove and the other without the rhythm track. Unfortunately both sound a little dated in a ‘90s techno fashion. Also, I know that the people responsible for the deaths of innocent workers in the World Trade Centre are going to face eternal retribution, but to write a song about how God will “make them pay” seems a little clumsy. File next to Paul McCartney’s post 911 effort “Freedom”.

Thank you for your review on my song, the words came to me a week after the disaster, they were sent to me from the upper realm, I'm sorry if you think it was clumsy, God only knows how he deals with the injustices of the World, we know nothing on this earth, it is only by the will and grace of God that we are here.
When I was born the World was horrified as I am one of the so called 'disabled people due to mans negligence (Thalidomide Drug) of which I'm truely gratefull to be here, if there had been scans when I was being carried, I surely wouldn't be here I'm Blessed J
