The beat of the music screams in their ears. There shouldn’t be anything left to fear. It’s a nightclub and they were there for fun.
Friends laugh and the music fades in and out. Tonight is a good night. Friends cant hear over the music so they begin to shout.
Love is love. Love that girl, love that boy, love is in the air and this is America and that is fair.
We sit hear and preach equality for all but we just watched more than fifty people fall.
Brothers and sisters of LGBQT, I am so sorry. You should never have to question who you are and you should never have to worry.
This matters because we should be one. Their love is beautiful and better then none. Maybe you are jealous?
America is afraid of what they don’t understand. Think about those gun shots. Who was there holding their hand?
Laying there dying and making a huge sacrafice. Trying to be free and live their life.
But here you are making judgement on what is not your norm… you are just helping with this firestorm.
Take a chance and take a leap. Try to accept the lives that they keep.
You don’t know and you don’t understand; stop passing judgement because you aren’t God’s chosen woman or man.
Stop making it about religion and politics. This is about hate. I hope for all of our sake that it’s not too late.
Preach love and teach tolerance. It’s time as humans to make a stand. It’s time for each of us to hold a hand.
For those brothers and sisters who have passed, for those friends and family looking for reasons, we will find a way to cope. We will find a way to change. Nothing you do is strange.
Bi, straight, trans, or gay it shouldn’t make a difference because we are all people at the end of the day.
Until next time,
Love is love; hate is hate. Love one another before it’s too late.
