The Orlando shooting was, with good reason, on my mind today. My heart is heavy after hearing of such a disgusting act.
I have many friends with many different beliefs. Please remember the intentions of these beliefs. No one wants this kind of violence and no matter what path we take to make our country better, we must work together to overcome this type of violence and hatred. Do not let violence, political difference, the media, religion (or lack thereof) tear us apart. We are all humans and this is not YOUR life. This is OUR life - we all share it. Use this tragedy, along with every mistake that you and I make, to grow, become a better person and always try and remember that what we do, say, and think has an impact on the lives of others. I hope that you will join me in this growth - striving every day to be a better person tomorrow than I was today, to learn from past mistakes and the ones I've yet to make.
