The Canadian vocal group Moxie Fruvous has a song which begins:
We got a call to write a song about the war in the Gulf,
But we shouldn’t hurt anyone’s feelings.
So we tried, and gave up, cuz there was no such song,
But the trying was very revealing
As I was preparing to lead our congregation in worshiping God last Sunday morning, I read a headline that said “20 Killed in Orlando Club Shooting.” By the time the worship service was over, someone told me the number of dead had risen to 50.
