Somebody's only one
A part of the soul that can't be replaced
And one day you wake up
And they're names on a page."
Floyd wrote a song that not only mourns the countless lives that have been lost, but a song that also towards the end points towards change. It points towards hope, and how we can use these horrific events to become better people, and a better country as a whole.
But she turns the song at the end, mentioning love, and how love is always there right along with hate. Morris sings, "I hate to tell you, but love's gonna conquer all."
I'm not going to go into the political side of all of this, because that's not what this post is about. This post is about choosing to love, instead of hate. This is about artists that have used music to choose peace. I"m going to leave you with this poem that country artist Ruthie Collins posted on her Instagram a couple of days ago, with hope that in your life, you decide to choose love over hate.
