I have a lot of emotions running through me right now. A lot of personal, business and family matters are troubling me. Yet, I can’t let anymore time go by and not express something about the horrific tragedy in Orlando this past Saturday night.
But, words in and of themselves are not the answer. Rhetoric is fine to a degree. We do that every time one of these events hits us like a 2×4. We must not stay silent but a part of me feels absolutely numb.
Prayers are plentiful. Sorrow is everywhere. Emptiness abounds. The world is in mourning . . . again. This time in and for Orlando.
Enough, damn it! Enough! These senseless acts must stop.
But we know it won’t.
I pray that our nation’s leaders have the guts to wake up and make mature, intelligent decisions rather than their usual, pitiful politicking in doing the politically correct thing.
Just do the right thing, you morons.
Lord, grant unto us the strength and courage to endure and to find some answers.
Bless the souls who perished. Bless the souls who survived. Bless us all, good and faithful servants. Onward.
Peace. Harmony. Solidarity. Community. Love. Pride.
