#OrlandoStrong …. “Our City …. PULSE …. “!!


~~June 30, 2016~~


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.”

Melissa Etheridge
