As we stood there in line to give blood I thought, WE ARE ALL THE SAME!!! We all bleed the same blood and we all need that blood to live. There is no separation, no politics, no agenda, just the common knowledge that we all depend on one another to live. The truth of that was in full view as we all waited 5, 6 hours to do whatever we could to be some small part of an answer. To help! So, as the days unfold before us and we learn the names of sweet ones gone the best way to honor them, their lives and their loved ones is to continue to reach out. To open our hearts to understanding, compassion, forgiveness and of course, LOVE. Yes, last night was senseless. I pray a conversation and legislation will take place to find ways to end this madness. One that will unite us. It is TIME!!! NO MORE! As these days unfold there will be many images seared into my brain but none more powerful than the one I witnessed this morning of hundreds of people waiting to give their blood in the hopes lives will be saved. That’s love! That’s kindness! That’s unity AND that’s MANKIND!!! My love goes out to all those suffering. I pray you will find strength in the days, months and weeks ahead. Please know that you are not alone.
