– A short note on Orlando: I am lucky to have not been part of a tragedy like that one. I can’t imagine what those families are going through. We should take time to pray for those families and friends to remember the ones who passed on and pray for the health of those who are injured. Even if you aren’t religious, that includes me as well.
Some people are troubled… They feel slighted or wronged in some way and they feel as if though no one is listening. The only way albeit completely wrong, that they feel they can communicate, is to do something so horrific that they will become impossible to ignore. Even if the people they hurt have nothing to do with their cause. It’s unfair and unfortunate. Which is why we can’t focus on those people. We must allow others to remember their lost ones, because that is the tragedy here.
And all of us can place blame on gun laws and mental illness or whatever. But, it doesnt change the fact that so many lives were hurt. Which is why it sickens me when politicians on both sides of the coin make a political statement to garner support, and make the situation about themselves. Its not about you… oppurtunist assholes.
A final point: Yesterday’s events were tragic and we should, including myself in this, treat others with a little more love today than most.
