Why JLo and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Orlando Tribute Is Awesome

JLo and Lin-Manuel Miranda performed a new song on NBC’s “Today” show to honor the victims of the Orlando shooting and to bring a message of hope to the family and friends of those injured or killed during the shooting. The performance was great and the tribute was a refreshing change from most of the reactions to the shooting.

The Message Hits the Mark

The message that starts with the title “Love Makes the World Go Round” hits the mark. Division and hatred spawn incidents like the Orlando shooting, but it becomes a vicious cycle when division and hatred are also the result of such incidents. Acceptance, tolerance, and love are what will help to truly bring an end to the violence. JLo and Lin-Manuel Miranda furthered that message with their tribute.
