Lets take a minute. Take a minute to remember your friends, your family or even the stranger on the street that said hello or gave you a smile. Take a minute to appreciate all of the things they do or the things that seem so small but are really what matter. Take a minute to remember that they could be gone in that minute. Take a minute to let that sink in. Take a minute to reflect on your life.
Take a minute to be silent. Take a minute to remember those lost on Sunday in Orlando. Take a minute to remember those lost in previous shootings, no matter how small. Take a minute to remember the violence. Take a minute to remember the media coverage. Take a minute to remember each single victim who had their lives taken away. Take a minute to realize that could happen to you. Take a minute.
I realize it’s not asking a lot. But every time I turn on my news-feed (no matter what site I’m on), there seems to be some kind of violence occurring. I don’t like to read or see this at all. It makes me sad and confused as to why someone thinks it’s okay that this keeps occurring. Don’t take credit for something. Don’t ignore the issues. Enough is enough everyone. We need to admit there’s a serious problem and really develop a plan to move in a better direction. We can’t keep letting this happen.
To all those who lost someone in Orlando, my heart is with you. To all those who have lost someone to another shooting, my heart is with you. To all those who live with violence, my heart is with you. My heart is with all of you. Stay safe. Love each other. Don’t let the hate win.
Love is Love.
We Stand United.
