(Update: I prepared this some time ago. Had I known the horrors that would occur I would have chosen something else. I didn’t even realize what would be up until I checked later this evening. I will let it stand, but I am realizing that I should check the news every Sunday morning and then adjust my music when necessary. My heart aches. I’m sick of the violence. And I wish to never see another white man holding a gun. It does usually seem to be the white men who do these killings.)
