Early on June 12, 2016, we experienced one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history. A man armed with a legally purchased Sig Sauer MCX assault rifle, opened fire on the Latin Night crowd at Pulse, a gay dance club in Orlando, Florida. He killed 49 people and wounded 53.

Trying to find the words to talk about this tragedy.

Here are some things I’ve been reading that have helped clarify my thoughts:
