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.

END OF THE MONTH

We ALL have a PULSE!!

In happened on June 12, as we all know.

As time goes by, we  tend to forget.

Yet, without warning, it hits me like a ton of bricks.

When that happens, my mind wanders to music.

The song pops in my head is Melissa Etheridge’s tribute to the massacre in Orlando.

I’m Puerto Rican.

I’m Latinx.

They were celebrating Latin night.

I could have been there.

The club is less than 30 minutes from my home.

This song says so much.

I’m including a music video that shows live pictures of the reaction of the Orlando community.

Please, bear with me and watch the video.

Hope you enjoy it.

In the wake of the unthinkable tragedy in Orlando, Melissa Etheridge found herself processing her pain with a guitar and pen in hand. And out of darkness, she brought a beautiful song entitled “Pulse” into the world. But “Pulse” isn’t just a song, it’s a message of love, an anthem of understanding and a call to forgiveness.

Melissa shared this beautiful moment with us on stage the other night, and we wanted to share her message of love with all of you. We could all use a good cry right now … and a reminder that we are all in this together.

“I think musicians … I think our job is to heal, our job is to put all those emotions in something and send it out and give it a place to where we can all … just breathe … and understand that we’re all humans and we all have a pulse.”

ANTHEM FOR OUR SORROW

We have all been reeling from the senseless killing that took place in a local gay bar in Orlando.

The word “PULSE” has acquired a new meaning.

I posted information related to this song a few days ago.

At the time, there was no official video.

I don’t think there’s one yet.

The video included below shows Melissa’ performing the song during her current tour.

I touches my heart and gives me the chills.

I have noe words … her lyrics are perfect.

MUSIC IS THE VOICE OF THE SOUL

I just found out about her song this afternoon.

We all know how soothing music is at times when the heart aches.

We are hurting in Orlando.

It’s been a long week.

At this time, all I have found is the song in SoundCloud.

It’s a beautiful, amazing, heartfelt song.

As soon as she publishes a YouTube video, I will post it.

For the time being, click on the link provided below and listen to the lyric of this powerful song.

An anthem indeed!

The legendary out singer initially wrote a song about Orlando to make herself less scared and angry.

But putting it out into the world, “feels like holding someone’s hand.”

Melissa Etheridge had just rolled into New York City on her tour bus Sunday mornin, June 12, when she heard the news about Orlando.

Like most LGBT people, she instantly felt helpless and uneasy.

“I found myself roaming around my apartment,” she tells The Advocate. After spending too much time staring at the nearby Freedom Tower, she picked up her guitar. “I knew that would make me feel better, and I just started writing.”

The result is “Pulse,” a rousing testament to humanity and love overcoming hate. In the song, Etheridge sings,

“I dream in a world that wants my soul / That tells me if I hate I can control / But I don’t believe it / I cannot conceive it / Because everybody has a pulse”

It’s earnest but beautiful; steadfastly positive against all odds.

“Once again I hang my head to cry / I can’t find a reason why they died / We will find the answer / Blowin’ in the wind”

PULSE

(LOVE WILL ALWAYS WIN)
Everybody’s got a pain inside
Imaginary wounds they fight to hide
How can I hate them
When everybody’s got a pulse

I dream in a world that wants my soul
That tells me if I hate I can control
But I don’t believe it
I cannot conceive it because
Everybody’s got a pulse

CHORUS
I am human I am love
And my heart beats with my blood
Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse

Once again I hang my head to cry
I can’t find the reason why they died
We will find the answer
Blowing in the wind that
Everybody’s got a pulse

CHORUS
Who ya gonna hate now
When there’s no one left but you
Who ya gonna gun down
When you can’t kill the truth
That its inside of us
It’s inside the blood
It’s inside a pulse

I am human I am love
And my heart beats in my blood
Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse

Hands up if you’re alive
Hands up if you’re alive

Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse
