There will be a time for carefully considered thought and analysis; today is not it. Whatever the underlying motivation, Sunday’s horrifying atrocity in Orlando struck at the heart of what I hold to be the most fundamental of human rights: equality.
No words are enough to describe the pain, the suffering, that so many people are going through right now.
This hateful, cowardly act of violence was an attack not just on the LGBT community – though it was – but also on all right thinking people. People who value tolerance, people who value equality, who value diversity, and peace, and harmony. People who want nothing more than to live in friendship and trust alongside their friends and families.
Words fail me.
