I am taking a short break to feel bad. Nearly 50 people dead because someone was upset by a kiss. A Kiss of all things. I can’t understand the anger and the hate…and the fear that would cause someone to do that. Our differences make us richer, stronger and more beautiful. That is not something to be feared.
It was an act of terrorism whether it was organized or not. It’s goal was to terrorize the LGBTQ community in the name of “morality”. How can killing be moral? I am pretty sure that, regardless of one’s faith, God calls us to love one another. People still try to find exceptions to that universal truth and they only show how wrong they are.
So we need to fight the hate with love. Teach our children to love others with all their differences. We need to stand up to hatred, intolerance, bigotry, and ignorance.
Tomorrow I will be back but today I am going to take a break to wish for a world of love.
