“Enough,” was written in response to the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in June of 2016. As a queer woman, I was hit particularly hard by this tragedy. The day after the shooting, I attended a vigil in downtown Kansas City and was deeply moved by the Heartland Men’s Chorus’ rendition of a song by activist musician and friend, Holly Near. I was reminded, once again, of the power of music to lift us up and bring us together in dark times. I started writing “Enough” on the drive home…

Our hearts are big enough
They can hold all of
This pain and all of this fear
And still overflow
With a love that we know
Will rise through all of our tears

We will show you what it means to be strong
We will love right through all of this wrong
We will not back down, we will stand our ground
Until all the guns are put down

Our hearts are brave enough
They will not give up
They will love love love love love
They will hold on tight
They will stand for what is right
Sing enough is enough is enough

Our hearts are kind enough
We will lift each other up
We will find a way through this dark
And when hope falls away
We will light the way
There is a fire and we are the spark
