The hate crime in Orlando has been heavy on my mind and my heart.  I’ve struggled to know what to say publicly, and in this post I have attempted to share my mind and my heart with you…


It feels so personal.

  • I have gay friends.
  • I have gay neighbors.
  • I have gay colleagues and contacts.
  • I have love and respect for all people, regardless of sexuality.


It feels so close.


And, yes, it feels so hateful.
