I’m Sad. I’m With You.

I don’t even know what to say about today’s shooting at a gay club in Orlando, the almost-shooting at a PRIDE event in LA, or the hateful way that some people are reacting to those things. It just makes me so, so sad. I don’t want to make this about myself and my feelings, but I wanted to say something.. I’m tired of just being silent about this kind of thing. The problem is that I don’t know what to say. What is there to say? My words are feeble.

To my LGBT+ brothers and sisters, I’m so sorry. This is weighing heavily on me, but I know it’s hitting so much closer to home for you. I know it is a scary time. I hope you’re safe, and I hope you have someone you can talk to. My heart goes out to all of you. I’m with you.

I feel a little pretentious and selfish even writing this. Am I just writing this to make myself feel better? Am I just adding to the noise today? Maybe. But if one person sees this and feels a little bit of hope then I guess it’s worth it.
