Earlier today a friend mentioned this song.  
In the face of personal tragedy and loss, and witnessing the tragedy and loss all around us, this song from her youth came to mind.

"Love is the Answer," by England Dan and John Ford Coley

This song is from the 70's, but the words are perhaps even more pertinent today.  
The lyrics are included under the video.

Indeed, Love is always the answer.  Simple, not always easy.

Name your price
A ticket to paradise
I can't stay here any more
And I've looked high and low
I've been from shore to shore to shore
If there's a short cut I'd have found it
But there ain't no easy way around it

Light of the world, shine on me
Love is the answer
Shine on us all
Set us free
Love is the answer

Who knows why
Someday we all must die
We're all homeless boys and girls
And we are never heard
It's such a lonely world
People turn their heads
And walk on by
Tell me is it worth just another try

Are we alive
Or just a dying planet
What are the chances
Ask the man in your heart for the answers
And when you feel afraid

Love one another
When you've lost your way
Love one another
And when you're all alone
Love one another
And when you're far from home
Love one another
And when you're down and out
Love one another
And when your hopes run out
Love one another
And when you need a friend
Love one another
We got to love one another
