It was THE ABSOLUTE BOMB when Prince died and everything turned PURPLE! It was SIMPLY MARVELOUS when SCOTUS passed gay marriage and the RAINBOWS came out everywhere! Yes, in times of celebration and mourning… we tend to bring out the colors. http://www.thegailygrind.com/2016/06/13/pulse-massacre-vigils/ Thank you Castro district of San Francisco and all the communities world-wide who gathered, and keep gathering for the fallen.
We tend as a nation to have a relatively short attention span and it worries me that this mass slaying will eventually get filed alphabetically with all the rest. Even before the use of technology was as utilized as furiously as it currently is, the world stayed in relative mourning for a good month or so after 9/11. Where we should be tonight and every night until there is major reform is marching in the streets everywhere
#1 with gun laws, to abolish them entirely and make it illegal for anyone to bear assault weapons.
#2 in mental health treatment and practices, making it more accessible to EVERYONE who needs it.
#3 in the way some religions and various people that follow them see gays as “different” or “queer” as they were once deemed. We gotta start somewhere folks and we have to end the stigmas and violence.
RIP victims of Orlando shootings and may their loved ones and all us extremely sensitive souls who suffer right alongside, find some semblance of peace inside.
