When I saw this for the first time, I didn’t even notice anything racist until it was pointed out to me.
But there are black and white kids getting along. Look, a colored lifeguard. There was no intent to be racist. I don’t see racism. I just see kids.
How am I supposed to feel about this? It’s sad and it breaks my heart. But all I seem to be flooded with is the reactions from all around the world.
Some people are calling for bans on guns.
Some are saying that gay people deserved to die because they are against God.
Some people aren’t really caring about this.
Some are still wondering how terrorists could do this.
I don’t know how to take all of this in. I would love to live in a world where this kind of hatred and violence is gone. But we don’t. I know that gun violence remains and we don’t seem to know what to do with it. I know that there is so much hatred against the LGBT and I can’t figure out how we can get everyone to just love and care for one another.
Where do we go? My heart breaks when people die. I don’t care if they are the same or different from me. It’s heartbreaking. And it hurts even more that this was apparently an act of hatred towards LGBT. It’s not fair. I wish there was a way to make it better. God, where do we go from here?
I can pray right now. But I want to do more and try to find a way to stop all of this. Stop the violence. Stop the hate. Stop the hurt. Can we just live in a world of peace and love?
I don’t know. I hope so.
What a season. A season that had little expectations ended up being a magical run. What we had was a great chance to see the team and the Bay fall in love with this team again. The hardest championship to win and the Sharks battled all the way to the very end. They just weren’t good enough. But I have hope. I have faith that one day they will win it. One day.
Until that day, I will continue to cheer for my team.
I wrote a quick one on my blog:
