VIDEO: Bret Michaels honors 9/11 heroes

Everyone knows this Sunday, September 11 is going to be a tough one for many, many people.

Ten years have passed since the 9/11 attacks on the US, and big, round numbers like that often bring out heightened emotions as folks remember the sights, sounds, and people in their lives on such occasions.

Rocker Bret Michaels was moved on that fateful, fall morning to write the song, “One More Day,” which appeared on his 2003 album, “Songs Of Life.”

Now, Michaels has created a moving tribute to the heroes of 9/11 with a new video for the song, featuring many of the American troops he has met during his work with the USO over the past decade.

“As a token of remembrance to the ones we lost,” says Bret, “and as a tribute to the American troops and civilians that stood strong in America's darkest hours and those who are still fighting for the world's freedom; as well as for the first responders and their family members, many of whom I have personally met and whom are still feeling the after-effects a decade later, I have created a 10th anniversary video for 'One More Day,' the song I wrote on that unforgettable day.”

In a new interview with Noisecreep, Michaels shares his 9/11 story from a decade ago and tells how he came to be inspired to write the song.
