Bagpipers Make Haunting Tribute to 'The Fallen' Firefighters of 9/11

During the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, there were 343 firefighters who gave their lives trying to rescue others. Fifteen years later, the Red Hot Chili Pipers of Scotland have created a touching tribute in their honor.

Whenever a firefighter dies, there are almost always bagpipes at the funeral. Bagpipers in Scotland wanted to produce a bagpipe piece of music to honor the fallen firefighters of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

A video accompanying the haunting song starts with a lone bagpiper on a Scottish castle. It shows firefighters in both New York and Scotland-- brothers in service, despite being of two different nations. As the video progresses, the tribute escalates to include more bagpipers and drummers joining in the tune.

Flowers are passed around during the video. By the end, we see the red buds sprawled out on a green field. They read '343'.

The tune, called '343 The Fallen', is available for digital download on Amazon and iTunes. The proceeds will go to supporting families of fallen firefighters in New York and in Scotland.
