With Grace and Love

A glad moment to recognize that, days after the brutal fact, vast numbers of Americans continue to offer an outpouring of grace and love to those lost in Orlando. Among them are the "angels" - part of the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre and Angel Action Wings - who turned up at a weekend funeral to drown out a few Westboro weirdos, allow mourners to "grieve in peace," and sing "Amazing Grace." And the crowd of 50,000 who gathered at a Lake Eola vigil to light a sea of candles, vow persistently that love wins, and sing "Rise Up." Perhaps, this time, we will.
