Love for Orlando

I’m not going to get on my political high-horse and discuss my beliefs about gun control or sexuality or religion – that can wait for another time.  All I know is that innocent people have been murdered in Orlando.  At the end of the day, the reason for it doesn’t matter.  They were living breathing people, and now they are not.  Their families don’t get to hug them or say goodnight to them, tell them they love them or celebrate holidays with them.  The victims won’t get to tell their stories or share their lives or live their dreams.

It just makes me sad, that’s all.  The world is a dark place sometimes and seems to be getting darker all the time.  I want to believe that love conquers all, but I fear it is fighting a losing battle right now.

How do you bring up children in this world?  How do you plan or dream or hope and teach them to do the same?  How?

The only shining light right now is that there is outrage and sadness after this mass shooting.  There are still good people and people who care about the lives of others.  ALL hope is lost when we stop feeling and caring.
I am trying to remember that today, but it is hard.

Today I send love to the victim’s families, and to the victims themselves x
