Like most of you, the tragedy in Las Vegas has absolutely rocked my world.

I don’t feel like blogging.
I don’t feel like working.
Honestly, everything seems a little pointless.
I feel really numb.

As I’ve told so many of you countless times in messages over the years, I have more questions than I do answers. That’s never been more true than today.

However, I heard a new song, called Dear Hate, this morning on the radio from Maren Morris and Vince Gill that brought me to tears- and at the same time gave me a sense of comfort. I want to share those lyrics with you and you can also listen to the song below.

I don’t know much, but I do know that love wins. Every. Single. Time.

Mourning with you,

Pete

 

Dear Hate
I saw you on the news today
Like a shock that takes my breath away
You fall like rain, cover us in drops of paint
I’m afraid that we just might drown

Dear Hate
Well, you sure are colorblind
Your kiss is the cruelest kind
You could poison any mind
Just look at mine
Don’t know how this world keeps spinning ’round and round

You were there in the garden like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love’s gonna conquer all

Dear Hate
You were smiling from that Selma bridge;
In Dallas, when that bullet hit, and Jackie cried;
You pulled those towers from the sky
But even on our darkest nights, we’ll keep spinning ’round

You were there in the garden like a snake in the grass
I see you in the morning staring through the looking glass
You whisper down through history and echo through these halls
But I hate to tell you, love’s gonna conquer all

Dear Love
Just when I think you’ve given up
You were there in the garden when I ran from your voice
I hear you every morning through the chaos and the noise
You still whisper down through history and echo through these halls
And tell me love’s gonna conquer all
Gonna conquer all
