Orlando 2016

I can't get over what's happened.

When is the violence going to end?

Pride is meant to be a celebration.

Pride is meant to uplift a community.

Pride is meant to say down with discrimination, segregation, hate, ugliness.

Pride is meant to say, we are people too.

We are people, just like you.

Pride is a safe place for a community that today, even in 2016,

Does not always feel safe.

Pride is a place for this community to feel free,

To be happy, to feel love, to be themselves entirely.

The one place where the hate cannot touch them,

But it did.
