We were in Puerto Rico at the wedding of a lovely couple last weekend when the Orlando tragedy happened. I can’t stop thinking about this wonderful couple and all the wonderful same-sex couples I know. And I keep feeling like this is a violation of the highest order. Allegedly, this terrifying act was inspired when the shooter witnessed two men kissing. Whatever your personal beliefs, the sight of strangers in love should not inspire violence.
I am sad, sad, sad, and I thought we could all use a little love. Inspired by Oliver Wasow’s Facebook album “Love Wins,” I put together my own.
And if you want to read about the victims of the shooting, the Orlando Sentinel has been posting details about each of them on their website as they become available. It’s a heartbreaking read, but I think these people deserve to be remembered as individuals as well as part of this terrible tragedy.
