On a day like today, 9 months ago, I woke up to the news.

It came with a deep, gut-wrenching feeling!

49 people dead, many injured, in a gay club relatively near my house, on Latin night.

I could’ve been there.

Some friends could’ve been there too.

Time goes by so fast!!

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


p1

~~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!

On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. He was shot and killed by Orlando Police Department (OPD) officers after a three-hour standoff.

Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Latino.

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.

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 … ‘

The average daytime temperature is a bearable 29°C (about 84°F) while the average minimum temperatures drop down to a pleasant 18°C (about 65°F).

There’s an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day during this month.

Hurricane Matthew …. “came and went …. Grateful”!!


ok

~~October 7, 2016~~ 

HURRICANE MATTHEW 

These were the days!

For me, it really started last Tuesday when I realized this monster was headed our way.

All the predictions were dire.

We picked up all the outside furniture, wind chimes, pots and plants … anything that could be a projectile.

Wondered what last night and this morning would bring.

We feel blessed and lucky!

To our advantage, it veered a bit east, from Category 4 went to Category 3.

There was rain and wind last night.

We still feel wind gusts.

Happy to say no major damage.

We have power, water, internet and television.

Luckier than so many others.

As of this writing, the eye is going over the city of Jacksonville, north from us.

We are OK!!

Sia – The Greatest …. “Three months ago today …. “!!

~~September 12, 2016~~ 

THREE MONTHS AGO TODAY

It’s been three long months.

It seems like an eternity ago.

Tributes continue to surface.

Sia has released a song Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar.

It’s powerful.

I’m sharing it today, on the 3rd month after the Orlando tragedy.

Hoping this event doesn’t get lost amid all the current events our society is continually going through.

The Greatestis a song by Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar

The single was released on 6 September 2016 through Monkey Puzzle Records and RCA Records as the lead single from her upcoming eighth studio album, We Are Your Children. The song was written by Sia alongside Greg Kurstin, who produced the song with AJ Santos also known as Yektro.

The video for the single features dancer Maddie Ziegler, and was directed by Daniel Askill for Radical Media.

sia

Jessica Goodman from Entertainment Weekly found the chorus “massive and catchy.” Once the critics had picked up on the song’s connection with the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic wrote:

Making pop about a specific tragedy is necessarily a tricky job. So it’s no crime that some of the other mainstream original songs memorializing Orlando have been as rote as issue-oriented singles are often stereotyped as being. But “The Greatest” is very potent, a work of art, not charity.There’s no break here from the rest of Sia’s catalogue about pain and release in everyday life: You hear a sad voice wailing about bucking up, very stark emotional peaks and valleys, and a danceable backing of explosive drums, toy-box melodies, and reggae grooves.

Sia and Greg Kurstin may have written the song even before the massacre. But in the context of Orlando, the possible platitude of the chorus becomes gutting:

“I’m free to be the greatest/I’m alive.”

She’s pepping the listener up, but she’s also defining the value of life, marking the human potential that’s been lost.

Sara Bareilles commends Calysta Bevier’s ‘Brave’ cover

Lori Melton

Aug 3, 2016

Grammy and Tony Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles shared some big Twitter love for 16-year-old “America’s Got Talent” contender Calysta Bevier after her emotional, inspirational cover of “Brave” during last night’s Quarterfinals live performances.

Bevier entered the round as Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer winner and she didn’t fail to disappoint Cowell, the audience and Bareilles herself who tweeted a clip of Bevier singing the song, captioned with three winking, kiss-blowing emojis.

How cool is that?

GoldSwirlSaraBGoldSwirl

Cowell clapped longer than any of the other three judges and then told her,

“I’ve never felt so nervous during one of these performances because I just wanted this to happen for you Calysta. From the very first time we met you and I watched the clip back and I said that you’re special and you got the Golden Buzzer, I’m so happy. You’re more than a great artist Calysta. You’re a very special person and you really truly are an inspiration.”

The iconic producer summed up the 16-year-old cancer survivor perfectly.

Bevier used music to get her through a very frightening and difficult illness.

GoldSwirlAGT12GoldSwirl

Her “Fight Song” AGT audition captured America’s heart and prompted Simon Cowell to press the Golden Buzzer. She returned to the Quarterfinals stage to deliver another important message:

be brave.

Her song choice was brilliant and couldn’t come at a more poignant time for our country. We’ve sustained tremendous losses in Orlando due to two senseless acts of gun violence. The Pulse nightclub victims lost their lives and “Voice” runner-up Christina Grimmie was murdered by a crazed fan.

The first attack was aimed at members of the LGBTQ community and Bareilles co-wrote the song “Brave” with Jack Antonoff of fun for a close friend who struggled with coming out.

‘Brave’ became a sort of civil rights anthem that was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance in 2014.
