How The Light Gets In

Today we learned about the loss of a great person of music and words; Leonard Cohen (1934-2016).  In one of his songs "Anthem" he wrote:

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

I was reminded tonight that this applies to the national tragedy we have all witnessed. The system is cracked but hopefully we can find light, learn, and come out whole.  

Thank you Mr. Cohen for the words.  

Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
