Saturday Night Live began with the New York City Children's Chorus singing "Silent Night."
In its simplicity, it was a touching tribute to the 20 children and six adults murdered on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut.
Amazing how powerful it was to listen to the children's voices singing the beloved Christmas hymn.
Heavenly peace, holiness, the love of Jesus Christ, juxtaposed with the soullessness of that violent slaughter.
It made me think of the gaping chasm that exists in our society in terms of values.
What a difference it makes to live one's life with love and a deep, consistent respect for life, grounded in belief in God; rather than hating, having an utter disrespect for life, believing in nothing, wallowing in meaninglessness.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
