I haven’t posted in awhile, the last few weeks have been busy, so I thought I would sit and write some thoughts about the park and what is going on. My thoughts today have drifted back to events of this weekend. Yesterday I had gone down to the Boise AIDS walk to lend a hand and support Jerry and Jeremiah on their efforts to help raise money for those living with aids. Many of those I hung out with were from the LGBT community. This morning I wake up and first thing I did was turn on the TV. I was floored by what I was seeing on the news. It took me a minute to comprehend what I was listening too and seeing on TV. Anger rose up in me and thoughts came back to me of the previous day. I had just spent hours yesterday with people from the LGBT community and met some of the most amazing wonderful people. We shared stories, a little about ourselves and we laughed and had a great time. As I sat and watched what happened in Orlando, I got angry as how someone could take the lives of such wonderful loving people. Then my heart broke and my anger turned to sorrow. I broke and found myself crying over the loss of life, because when it comes to the bottom line, those whom we lost today were someone’s son, someone’s daughter and most of all they were a child of the living God. Non of us live a perfect life and at the end of the day when all is said and done, our God still loves us. So tonight the anger has gone, the grief is still there and prayers are being lifted up to those who have lost today. Let them know they are loved Lord!
I spent sometime today looking at different post on facebook and what different people where saying about the events of the day. A couple stood out to me and I wanted to share them.
