Orlando was the center of some awful violence this weekend.
A young singer, Christina Grimmie, was murdered after performing Friday night and early Sunday morning there was a mass shooting at a gay bar. Officials are saying it’s the worst mass attack on American soil since 09/11.
At this time, law officials don’t know if it’s a terrorist attack or a hate crime as they are still investigating. In my opinion, it’s both.
Regardless of your intentions, premeditatedly walking into a facility that has primarily homosexual attendees and murdering a bunch of them is the definition of terror and hate. This man went to this club with the intention of murder. He was armed with assault weapons. He took lives and in all honesty, the why doesn’t matter to me. There is no excuse for such violence and hate. Period.
For those of you that are unaware, or are simply misguided, being gay is not a crime. It’s not a choice, it’s not a phase and it’s not a travesty. It’s being gay, plain and simple. Those that are gay should not be sought out for murder because of their lifestyle, regardless if you agree with it or not. Imagine if someone didn’t agree with you being straight. Or being Jewish. Or being blonde. Or being short. Imagine living in fear because of something that is out of your control. Imagine feeling like you have to hide who you are because ignorant people have a problem with it. It’s ludicrous.
My heart goes out to all those affected by this senseless act of violence. ❤️💙💜💚💛
Please everyone…stop the hate!
