Some days simply call for love. As Lin-Manuel Miranda crystalized in his acceptance speech at last night’s Tony Awards, much more eloquently then I ever could;

…We chase the melodies that seem to find us
Until they’re finished songs and start to play
When senseless acts of tragedy remind us
That nothing here is promised, not one day.
This show is proof that history remembers
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.
I sing Vanessa’s symphony, Eliza tells her story
Now fill the world with music, love and pride….

Now fill the world with music, love and pride.

May love prevail over all else.
