Let Love Win

I’ve been putting off writing about the tragedy that occurred in Orlando this past weekend where 49 people were killed and 53 people were injured because of one individual so filled with hatred that he would think such an horrific act was the answer to anything.

I thought what is there left to be said?

Everyone already covered it; from condolences to prayers to professions of solidarity to even disgusting words of unwarranted self-congratulations (you know who…) to no words at all, just horror and sadness that something like this can still happen.. but I realized.. no matter how small it may seem, every message of love and support needs to be put out there.

We cannot let one man’s hatred drown out all the voices of love, acceptance, and hope. Fear cannot win. Hate cannot win.

If people come together and continue to love deeply, hopefully the community can touch and open up even the harshest of hearts and pave way for a future where this cannot and will not happen anymore.

 

anger and violence runs a foul game
try it might to destroy those not the same
but those with bleeding hearts die not in vain
as the ones left behind
will take up the beat
thump thump thump
steady as one
let the love overrun

    i really love the way you wrote that poem it says so much and shows how strongly you feel about the tragedy that happened, i love that its hopeful at the end i wish none of this had to happen its absolutely horrible and unspeakable what happened but i hope those left behind too choose to love and accept anyone that’s different. what happened was there are no words to describe how wrong it was, i just hope those left behind and everyone else still aren’t afraid to be who they really are and everyone embraces that because we cant live in such a fucked up world i didnt even know there was that many injured too i still cannot understand who would sell that man a machine gun there is no reason why something like that should ever be sold to someone, what purpose could they have for it other then something so horrible and unimaginable. I really support and agree with everything you have said here.
