Thoughts on Orlando

Morning and happy Tuesday!

I haven’t been around much because my family and I were on vacation last week. We had an amazing time together, and I feel so blessed we were fortunate enough to have that luxury.

I heard about the Orlando massacre while at the beach. I actually read the headline on Facebook first and for some reason thought it was some kind of sick joke, so I dismissed it and kept scrolling… until I saw it again.

There’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been said. Feelings of devastation, fear, anger, and grief over watching the news unfold were followed by hope and pride as we saw the heroes emerge. Whether by donating time, money, blood, or actually rushing into the devastation, America got a front row seat to see the LGBT+ community and its allies show the world that love is greater than hate.

The victims of this shooting, their families, and the entire LGBT+ community has been in my prayers since last Sunday. I can’t imagine how difficult this has been to experience and process and live through. I’m not much, but please know I’m in your corner. orlando shooting
