Prayers of Understanding Are Needed In America

My Singular Thought of the Day
 
THE SADNESS OF SUNDAY MORNING'S TRAGIC EVENT STILL HAS ME IN SUCH A STUNNED STATE OF DISMAY.
 
I may not fully comprehend the choices people make to express their personal sexuality. I cannot for the life of understanding the viciousness that exists for some people to deal out savageness in the form of these types of attacks on innocent human beings. My brother who was 2 years older than I was a gay man. I didn't understand his choice and as a younger brother, I took grief growing up because my peers couldn't comprehend his choice. However, it was indeed "his" choice and not for anyone else to personally judge. Larry Hall has long since left this realm for a higher plane hopefully. It was my sincere hope that all the troubles he had encountered while living gay would mean that he'd find his ultimate happiness when he passed on. I however, would never want anyone to wantonly take his life for his choice in lifestyle. To wake up Sunday morning and know that 49 soul's lives were taken simply because of lifestyle choice is frightening. It is apparent to me that "hatred" and "bigotry" still reign supreme in this nation of ours. When will ever move to the plane of human decency? Or are we saddle forever with the fact that this nation simply has too much immersed hatred and bigotry to ever overcome those feelings?
 
GOD BLESS THE LOST SOULS THAT WERE KILLED IN AN ORLANDO NIGHTCLUB EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. WE MUST AS A PEOPLE DEMAND THAT REACH FOR HIGHER PLANES OF LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING AND MOVE AWAY COMPLETELY FROM HATRED AND BIGOTRY.
