During his acceptance speech for Best Original Score (for Hamilton), Lin-Manuel Mirandaalso paid tribute to the victims of the attack.
Reading a sonnet that he wrote, he said:
“We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger / We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer.”
