This morning I woke up to hear 20 people were shot and killed at a nightclub. Later it was broke to 50 people dead and 53 injured. Which is expected to unfortunately rise as the day passes.
It’s 2016.. And homophobia is still a thing? Why don’t we accept our own kind. Maybe in some eye’s they are “different”. But in reality, they are exactly the same. Love is Love. Don’t discriminate someone because they are attracted to a gender you aren’t. See two males kissing on the street? Go them. They are brave enough to show the world they don’t care. Because frankly, I don’t care what the LGBT community does. They all have the same rights as everyone else does. Also.. It’s 2016. Why are mass shootings still happening every day? Why haven’t we said this is enough and put an end on this?
Why don’t we start a revolution on gun control and prevent lunatics from getting a hold of guns? Where do we draw the line to where enough is enough? No one want’s to come to the US after hearing all the shootings that’s happening. No one want’s to travel to a country where terrorism and hate is happening, right? We can’t even go anywhere to feel safe. This nightclub was a place for the LGBT community to come together, have fun, and feel safe without judgement. My questions is.. Where is safe these days? I cannot think of any place that’s actually “safe.”
No matter what your race, gender, ethnicity, or sexuality is.. There are people who love you. There are always people you can reach out to and talk to.
