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 …. “!!

~~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.

~In the arms of an Angel~

Sarah McLachlan

~~Uploaded on May 22, 2011~~

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 … ‘

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.

Thoughts for today, #392 …. “Can bury us …. we are seeds”!!


BurySimpleC

~~August 13, 2016~~ 

CAN’T BURY US

Two months, after 49 souls were forcibly removed from this Earth, I find this graphic.

It brought to mind, the many times that humans in the LGBT community have been silenced.

How many have given their lives to bullying, violence, abuse, discrimination, murder?

It’s been proven over and over again, those voices may be silenced.

Yet, many more come out and take their place.

One goes away, another one takes its place.

Like seed, we can’t be buried.

Little Seed of Hope
Let your little seed of hope grow
nurture and protect it
and someday you will
recover
from a hopeless state of
mind and body

If i can do it
so can you

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. “Majority of Victims …. from Puerto Rico …. “!!

~~August 12, 2016~~ 

MORE THAN HALF WERE PUERTO RICANS

“San Juan, Puerto Rico

From the first hours after the news of the Orlando massacre broke, in which a shooter killed 49 people and injured 53 others in an act of hatred of LGBTQ people, it was clear that most of the men and women who died that day were Latin Americans.

But it wouldn’t be for several more hours, after the majority of the victim’s names were confirmed, that it would become clear that most of the Latinas and Latinos were Puerto Rican …

23 of the 49 killed.”
