Comedy can help us get through the worst of times and heal. Friday afternoon’s school shooting in Newtown, CT has left our whole country and the world reeling with the news of such innocent lives lost and the heroism of many teachers. It’s hard to know exactly how to respond to such a tragic event, but kudos to Saturday Night Live for its sensitive and moving tribute to the 27 victims. The New York City Children’s Chorus opened the show with a tender, somber rendition of “Silent Night” (you may see it below) and then returned later in the show to perform with musical guest Paul McCartney. What a perfect way to honor the lost lives and offer a chance for healing.
Thinking of everyone in Connecticut and wishing for peace.
