My soul hurts.
I woke up Sunday morning to violence and hatred bleeding from my television. The place: Orlando, Florida. The death toll: 50 and numerous injured. The cause: radical terrorism. One man, in the name of a terrorist group walked into a nightclub and killed as many as he could. His reasoning? Hate.
My spirit weeps.
Each person who died was special. They were someone’s son, father, brother, uncle, friend, lover. It doesn’t matter to me that they were gay. They’re human beings, just like you and me. They cry when they’re sad. They laugh when they’re happy. They dance when music is played. They love. They spread the Light.
My voice will not be silent anymore!
The hatred and violence needs to end. Blah, blah, blah, gun rights. You show me one reason why a person needs an assault rifle in this world. You don’t need it to hunt. You don’t need an assault rifle to protect yourself and your family from a criminal.
Assault weapons are banned in the UK and Canada. They should be banned in the US.
We are all created equal, no matter what race, creed, sex or sexual orientation. We are all human beings. Stop with the hate and outstretch a hand in understanding. Do not judge others; it’s not your place to judge. All evil acts will be punished, in due time.
“If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world.”
Spread love and Light, not hatred and darkness.
