We shall be as a murderous, rapacious city upon a hill …

From CNN, April 16, 2021: “A gunman opened fire outside and inside a FedEx Ground facility near Indianapolis’ main airport Thursday night, killing eight people, wounding several others and sending witnesses running before taking his own life, police said … The incident marks at least the 45th mass shooting in the United States since the Atlanta-area spa shootings on March 16. CNN considers an incident to be a mass shooting if four or more people, excluding the gunman, are shot and wounded or killed.”

In March 31, 2021, I posted We shall be as a city upon a hill.

Ditto.
