It's not often I comment on the news, but I cannot stay silent on this.

I cannot stay silent when lives of 50 innocent human beings end in horror in a mass shooting in Orlando, and when 53 others are wounded.
I cannot stay silent when their families are either mourning or fearing for their loved ones.
I cannot stay silent when the Omar Mateens of the world prey on the innocent.

This country needs to do SOMETHING.
SOMETHING to prevent the mass shootings.
SOMETHING to stop the hate crimes.
SOMETHING to stop terrorists.
SOMETHING to end the violence.

If we are to become a more moral and rational society, we must not only stop violence when it happens, we need to do something to PREVENT violence.  Call or e-mail your lawmaker (federal, state or local) and tell them what you think needs to be done to prevent senseless killings, whether it be for more funding and training for mental health care, or laws that prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands, or anything else that ensures that hate crimes and mass shootings are prevented.  Whether you are liberal, conservative or somewhere in the middle, you cannot and should not deny that the violence must end.  CONTACT YOUR LAWMAKER!

I hope for a day when we react to our differences not with fear or hatred, but with love and understanding.

If you're reading this and you know someone who was at Pulse in Orlando, my thoughts and prayers are truly, truly with you.
