THE MONTH OF JUNE 2016

…. a very special month of the year ….

RBLine

June is a very special month for the LGBT community.

Foryears, it has been marked as PRIDE month.

Many celebrations take place all over the world.

Parades are here, there and everywhere.

It’s a time when we come together, in the LGBT community, to celebrate our existence, to commune with others like us and with allies.

Per Wikipedia:

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals and even a cable TV station and the Pride Library.

As the month winds down,  we reflect upon our right to exist, our right to be recognized as equal, our right enjoy life to the fullest anad our right to happiness.

A somber note dulled the celebrations this year.

2016 will always be remembered as the year when 49 beautiful souls were suddenly and senselessly taken in Orlando during the Pulse nightclub shooting.

We remain standing and strong in every sense of these words.

We are here to stay.

We all are the same!

BRING HIM HOME

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there
He is young
He’s afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.
He’s like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son.

~~Remembering the 49 lives lost in the Orlando shooting~~

~~Published on Jun 19, 2016~~

Last week as I sat alone to order lunch, an instrumental version of ‘Bring Him Home’ from Les Misérables began to play in the restaurant.

Immediately, I thought about the 49 lives lost in the Orlando shooting. I searched for the lyrics and tears began flow.

Especially when I read ‘He is young, He’s afraid, Let him rest, Heaven blessed.’ as the music continued to play.

But, I wiped my tears and had my lunch. Later, I told Elisa what had happened. She said you have to edit a video with that music and the pictures of the victims.

Here’s the video I edited remembering the 49 victims in last weekends Orlando shooting. (The music is from the Glee version of ‘Bring Him Home’)

I WANT THIS AS MY NEXT TATTOO

Some of you may know that I have several tattoos.

I thought that I had given up on getting any more.

At my age, the skin’s elasticity and “recoil” has decreased.

I just say this as I scrolled through my Facebook Timeline.

I want this tattoo.

I have already sent message to my tattoo artist to schedule appt.

I even know where want it.

Let’s see.

Shooter

~~June 18, 2016~~ 

NO SPOTLIGHT FOR YOU

Sadly, I made nearly an identical post last year and nothing has changed.

The news media features long, extended shots of this mass murderer’s face while spending hours covering the minutiae of his life, personality and motivations.

This non-stop coverage inspires more disgruntled, socially alienated losers to pursue similar recognition, even if posthumous.
We must honor the victims rather than glorifying their murderer.

THE TRIBUTES CONTINUE

As we very well all know ….

On June 12, 2016, a mass shooting terrorist attack occurred inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States, resulting in 50 deaths, including the gunman, who was killed by Orlando police after a three-hour standoff, as well as 53 additional injuries.

It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

In Our Minds

We stand motionless,
consumed in grief.
Sorrow has arrived,
with smiles thief.

We’re gathered here,
to mourn and cry.
Our questions pointing,
at the clear blue sky.

Why did you go,
why did you leave,
Life without you,
is so hard to conceive.

Our hearts are damaged,
and scarred severely.
We shall miss you,
much more than dearly.

For having you in our lives,
we’ve all been blessed.
But now the time has arrived,
for you to rest.

We promise to cherish,
our memories of you.
You shall live in our minds,
and all that we do.
