Grace

about

In light of the brutal terrorist violence in Charleston SC, and the subsequent eulogy from President Obama in which he sang Amazing Grace - I thought to share my own version of the song, in which I had replaced the word God with Love. This version also relates to the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states, which fell on the same day as the eulogy. I hope you feel a little grace today. And I hope we can as a country find a way to gracefully evolve toward the side of knowledge, the side of history which knows injustice, wherever it may lurk, is a wound on humanity which must be healed collectively. We have to root out the hate with love, equality, and education. It's our only hope.
