My heart is broken for the LGBT community and for all of us.

This is beyond comprehension... such evil in the world. How do we stop this?

Hugs, love, and support to all who care about these victims, loved these victims and care about humanity.

14. Thank you. Heartbroken is a good description.

Stopping evil in the world is a tall order. Stopping legal homophobia is even a tall order, but we can at least start with that goal.

The UN might be able to earn some of its hefty keep if it really put its shoulder to the wheel on this. And, by "shoulder to the wheel," I don't mean only a sternly-worded statement.

18. As a member of the LGBT community

I just don't have any hope any more. I don't feel safe. I always wonder who going to blow me away when they find out I'm gay? Whose going to keep assaulting me online because they don't like I'm gay. I just have no hope left for humanity. I can't deal with it

It's hideous isn't it.

I happened to be watching a documentary on the Dark Ages yesterday (not the sanitized version I got in school), and stuff like this is straight out of there, with guns.

I don't know what to say. I empathize as much as I can, and when I do that it terrifies me.

A smiley seems too weak, but it's all I can offer in a post.

It's always darkest before the light.

More and more people are supporting LGBTQ, and that scares those who fear and hate them.

This instance was a combination of two hatreds...anyone who wasn't radical Islam and anyone LGBTQ. So it was a young man willing to die for his hatred, which is not often what you have to worry about. But as the ISIS triggered terror attacks rise, the attacks on LGBTQ might also rise. I wish this weren't so.

But as I first said, more people ARE supporting and accepting LGBTQ than ever before and that means we are seeing progress. Any time a group feels threatened by change they lash out, but eventually the change crushes them. It takes time, and we stand with you through this change and welcome you with open arms when you need support and comfort.

30. I hate *having* to K&R this stuff, though. If you understand what I mean.

 

The fact that such a thing happened, and we're left, futilely, to our online threads.

And that nothing will change.

And that we are all a little more diminished after each one of these events.

Yes. For me (and perhaps for Hemingway?), John Donne said it best. I wish the beginning of the poem were not so Europe-centered or male-centered, but it always moves me anyway.

Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

What does it matter if the person you love has a different color of skin or is 'the wrong gender'.
I am a 57 year old Grandma and I have honestly thought for many years that your gender is between your ears, not between your legs.
Of course, I am a lifelong liberal who lives in Colorado, where we voted pot as legal. I use it for my MS pain. We would have less car accidents if it was legal national.

the person or people who love, rather than hate, and for the person or people who are loved, rather than hated.

If love always trumped, people we love would not be victims of those who hate.

185. In my view, it's a matter of critical mass ...

... I say "love trumps hate", not because it instantly neutralizes hate in the face of it. That has never happened. It takes a much higher order of sustained effort.

My sister has a saying... Go ahead... Kill me. I'll only be dead, meaning, any actor will be left with hate until it consumed them. She's gone through a lot in life. I truly believe THAT attitude deflates the intention.

Doesn't seem possible at this point, yet, I believe it's true that hate would burn out far faster than what we'd LIKE to do in response to domestic terrorism and hate crimes.

179. Absolutely

You beat me to it. As in all days when I silently stand in solidarity with you my LGBTQ brothers and sisters, today is a day that it needs to be said.

As King has said "The arc of the moral universe is long, but tends to bend towards justice"

we have more bending to do, and together in the days, weeks and years ahead we will do it.

Go in peace my friends and know that there are millions with you to take the journey and do the lifting!

Suddenly, the difference between Bernie supporters and Hillary supporters are not so vast now. Thank you for your post, merrily.

BTW, I temporarily changed my avatar from a Hillary photo to the rainbow flag, as suggested here:

Especially need to see this after all the bullshit I am seeing here.

Thank you for this thread. It really is needed by me (and probably a few others) to ground us.

213. You're welcome. As I've said, it was little enough, but all I could think of at the moment.

In hindsight, in a less emotional moment, I wish I had put some donation links in the OP. Or maybe that would have been crass? I don't know, but I didn't think of it when I started the thread. I was all emotion, no thinking.

Maybe I will do another OP in a few days. HRC is my go to. If you have any organizations to recommend for that thread, please reply to this post with them or pm me. Thanks.

214. Two that we donate to are...

The Trevor Project which is a suicide hotline for LGBTQ youth and others, as well as a resource for LGBT people struggling and Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund which works to end (and addresses) LGBT homelessness, especially among youth.

Lauper is something else.

This is great. Maybe I should do a thread for everyone to can post his or favorite places to donate to LGBTQ causes.
