Words.  I know it hasn’t been two weeks since my last post, but I’ve been inundated with the shifting sands of media coverage since last weekends slaughter in Orlando.

And then, tonight, Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC) of all people (Sorry Lawrence…that sounded bad) introduced Rick and I to 2 young song writers (Eli Lieb & Brandon Skeie) who wrote the song in about an hour.  The song, “Pulse” was recorded and put to video form in about 6-hours.

As a community, we know how to organize, to press and to overcome.  While ‘no more funerals’ is a lofty goal, let’s start with a simple song from the heart.  Words.

Listen to the lyric.  Powerful stuff.

Well done, Gentlemen.  Well done.
