Light and Love to Orlando…..


I can’t wrap my head around hate

How someone being different is

Treated as a bad thing

How that hatred extends to murder

Of people you don’t even know

Or have any concept of

How it broils so deeply within

That they can pick up a weapon

And end someone’s life

I will never have an understanding of it

And for that I am truly grateful…..

    This is awesome. Thanks for putting into words how so many are feeling about this event. I’ve been struggling to understand this as well, but I didn’t think of this struggle as a good thing, but it definitely is!
