My heart is heavy for the recent events in Orlando. This one hits a little too close to home. The media’s portrayal and the millions of issues that stem from this can cloud the simplicity of what is really important here, love & acceptance. We need to accept each other’s difference and beliefs. We need love our neighbors and spread positivity, not hate. It is important to remember the victims and their families regardless of race, religion, or orientation.
I choose to see the positivity in all of this. How people have lined up to donate blood, how hard first responders and medical professionals helped to save lives, how the nation has responded in support in their own unique way.
