FLYING HALF MAST 

On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 58 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

Pulse was hosting a “Latin Night” and thus most of the victims were Latinos. It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in United States history.

It was also the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

Tragedy struck in the early hours of the night

It was a night of fun and celebration at a Latin even at Pulse, a local LGBTQ night club in Orlando.

Most victims were Latino and Hispanic.

It was Pulse’s Latin Night. 

It was a horrible situation. It was a huge hit for the Latino and Hispanic communities. It was reported that 90% of the victims were Latino/Hispanic with 23 of the victims from Puerto Rico.

Pulse Shooting …. “Six Months Ago Today …. In Memoriam …. “!!

~~December 12, 2016~~ 

SIX MONTHS AGO TODAY 

I woke up this morning with a sense of dread.

I realized the date!

It’s been ‘only’ six months ago, yet it feels like an eternity.

Since then, life has changed in plenty ways for many of us.

Life ended for 49 human beings that fatal night.

Let us not ever forget!

Partial Lyrics

‘In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here … ‘

SEEMS LIKE A LIFETIME AGO

On July 12 …. it was one month ago.

I’ve been without a computer for almost a week.

I finally got it back today.

I’ve missed several important events and this is one of them.

I’m trying to catch up.

On June 12, 2016, we woke up to the terrible news of a mass shooting in a local gay club: PULSE.

This started around 2am this morning. Lives have been lost, our community is in pain. Investigation still ongoing …. local police, FBI and other Federal Agents.

Sad days continued in this country.

“It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history, as well as the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001.”

Forty nine people died in the incident and another 53 were injured.

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.

WAKING UP FROM SLEEP

I woke up this morning with an eirie feeling.

Then it hit me, like a ton of bricks.

It isn’t a nightmare.

It’s my hometown’s reality, my community’s reality.

So much more pain is expected as the names of victims a published.

Many families will be in pain.

It wasn’t a dream, we are living this as I write.

To give you an idea, Pulse is less that 1/2 hour away from my home.

In another time in my life, I could’ve been there too.

Some of my friends were supposed to be there Saturday but, for some reason, they stayed away.

It was Latin night, a big night for the LGBT Latin group.

“It Is What It Is” is in mourning.

We don’t know yet when we will resume our regular postings.

For now, we are in mourning!
