At work, I made this board for #OrlandoUnitedDay, which is June 12th marking the anniversary of the tragedy that happened at #pulse.

It’s in honor of the 49 lives that were taken. The youngest was 18, the oldest was 50, and the average age was 29. Sit and think about those ages.
It was emotional writing these names down. I’d write there name down and say it aloud without trying. It was so cerebral and emotional and intense to see these names that were a part, that are still a part, of my community here in central Florida but their lives were taken.
A lot of these people were people of color... there were African americans and the majority of them were Latinx. Queer people of color out celebrating one moment and gunned down the next. For what? Seriously think about that. Think about the hatred that was fueled by all this.
