In Memory of Those Lost in Orlando
Diversity Rules Magazine honors the memory of those lost in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016. It is a somber issue memorializing the massacre of 49 of our fellow compatriots. What a difference one year makes.
We were celebrating a momentous victory before the Supreme Court last year that legalized same-sex marriage throughout the country with pride celebrations exuding excitement that was never felt before. However, this year we mourn the loss of innocent lives once again to gun violence. It is this nation’s new scourge. Senseless death at the hands of crazed lunatics with demented souls and hate in their hearts toward their fellow humans.
While we must be vigilant and stand guard against those who wish to do us harm, we must also not cower in fear. We must go about our lives and do whatever we can to try to stem the rages of hate and those that harbor it deep within the dark recesses of their hearts and minds.
We must also ask when will it all end? When will our elected officials awaken to the realization that something must be done to curb this incessant and numbing news that happens now with such unacceptable frequency. How many more lives will be lost before we say enough?
Hate knows no boundaries. It does not limit itself to those in big cities, as what happened in Orlando could very well happen in any other place in the country.
We must always be United in Strength, United in Spirit and United in Resolve.
