Tragedy in Orlando

“Three of the most contentious questions in American culture and politics — gay rights, gun control and terrorism — collided in a horrific way in an Orlando nightclub early Sunday.” —Washington Post, June 12 “The New Norm: When Tragedy Hits, Americans Stand Divided”

The above quote from the Washington Post really struck me and I had to stop and think hard about the state of our country at this moment in time. This is 2016, folks, but I feel like we’re sliding backwards in so many ways. Violence, hatred, and intolerance get worse. I don’t think any of our presidential candidates have an answer. The answer needs to come from us.

I believe in a Higher Power and I believe we are all connected. The falsity is that we are separate from each other and from our Source. Separateness breeds us and them and that, in turn, promotes hatred for anything different or dissimilar. Don’t be afraid to reach out and connect with anyone you believe is different from you and you’ll discover our souls are the same.

    Thank you Maya, for your comments. We are very horrified, but unfortunately not that surprised given the homophobia and persecution of immigrants, especially Latinos/as, and by the glorification of guns and their availability in this country, while the NRA goes unchecked and their lobby gets stronger and stronger.
