Y'all, I don't have words for this...for some fucker going into a nightclub where people were celebrating and just enjoying life, and killing fifty people, injuring 53 more, all because-- because why? There are so many whys. Why did the murderer have a weapon in the first place? He'd been investigated by the FBI twice. Why did this happen? Trying to make sense of it is impossible, because that kind of hatred, that kind of brutal, cruel, evil hatred is incomprehensible to most of us.
I couldn't sleep last night as this was occurring, couldn't believe it was happening, couldn't...just couldn't. This is not about me, however. This is about innocent people murdered, injured, their families, friends, the entire LGBTQI community and their allies, because unless changes are made, this can happen again.
And it might not be an LGBTQI club next time, or it might be another one, or who knows where else. Hatred can spread; these are human beings who were murdered, targeted because of their sexuality, and there have been so many politicians fueling the fire against the LGBTQI family. Now they rant about terrorists but don't mention the victims, don't admit to having blood on their hands.
It's got to stop. This is horrific. It's worse than horrific. There aren't enough words to fit.
Please feel free to comment, or skip this post, whichever. I need to vent. I'm still sick and feel like shit, but this? This is worse than strep or whatever. This is an atrocity that should never have happened.
