As we all try to make sense out of the Connecticut school shooting tragedy – not that I think any of us ever will be able to – we all look for things to help us cope. I put together this quick mix of ‘Angels Among Us’ by Alabama for you, in hopes it can help you deal with this traumatic event.

‘Angels Among Us’ was first released by Alabama in 1993 as a Christmas single, off their album ‘Cheap Seats.’ The song itself is about how we can all help each other get through tragedies such as this.

Sample lyric:

I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

Using news audio, we’ve highlighted the song’s relevance to the horrific shootings in Newtown, Conn. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the children and families affected by this awful tragedy.
