|Lilac colored smoothie honor. Purple is that non-conforming color that seems to resonate with all genders.|
I never meant to cause you any sorrows,- Prince Roger Nelson
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only want to see you
Laughing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain.....
Pride Day is in full swing in Philadelphia today. Celebrations included a parade, a festival, and other activities.
Yet news of last night's senseless Orlando nightclub massacre spread like a shocking wildfire, blowing treacherous smoke up in cyber sphere, causing gut-wrenching reactions worldwide. Vitriolic attack on the LGBT community-- inside of their safe place, their refuge-- was downright horrific, unnecessary kind of unspeakable evil. Those who perished will not ever grace their loved ones with joy, happiness, candor, and freedom. They were robbed. Stolen. Taken away.
Now we've formed a united front, at least online. Here are a few Go Fund Me links to support:
Pulse Victims Fund
Pulse Tragedy Community
If you're present in Orlando now, give blood, volunteer at the hospital, make cards for the victims' families, help in any way possible.
When there are no words left to convey, make a drink, raise glass to endless heavens and think about all of the wonderful, beautiful, special people lost this year-- even the ones you've never ever met.
