Orlando reaction: Serenade on the C-Line

Thanks to @smyliegrl for calling this KUOW report to our attention via Twitter: A C-Line rider serenaded his fellow passengers in West Seattle with the 1965 classic “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” to counter Orlando-massacre despondency. In the KUOW clip, you’ll hear part of it – and a followup interview with the singing passenger. (Lyrics here.)

    Beautiful…thanks for sharing, this really helps get my day going in a positive direction. Special thanks also to the singer, Daniel Tidwell (hope I got that right), for acting on his impulse to bring people together in love, not hatred or violence.

    I was moved by this story when I heard it on the radio yesterday. I can only imagine how touching it would be to hear the singing in person. That bus commute can feel soulless with everyone sucked into their handheld devices. And suddenly someone was brave enough, compelled enough, to sing out. It’s a small call for action, and look, people are talking about it.
