Sad day

More thanĀ 50 beautiful souls are gone.

The LQBTQ community yet again finds itself a victim of extreme violence. This happens entirely too often. It does not matter if someone calls someone a degrading name or murders them. Violence is violence.

I have worked in the medical field for more thanĀ 20 years. I have taken care of many homosexual people. A few were not nice people, but most were kind people who were grateful for everything we did for them. I always found them to be the most inspiring patients. I learned something from every one of them I bathed, fed, held their hands, cried with, prayed with.

Gay people should not be treated any different from anyone else. They are human. What someone does in their bedroom is their business. Who they love is their business. They should not be mocked, spit at, beat up, murdered just because someone disagrees with their lifestyle.

We are all human and we all have the right to be loved and to love. We cannot allow hate to stop that.
