The purpose of going to a nightclub is to get out for a night and get away from the daily grind. Have a drink, hang out with friends, dance, and maybe meet that special someone.
Last night, a gunman opened fire in an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs. 5 people were killed and another 25 were injured. Thankfully, the accused was stopped before any more lives could be taken.
Just like the shooting at the Orlando nightclub in 2016, this location was chosen because of its patrons. The reason these people are dead is simply that they were being themselves.
I can’t help but wonder if our gun control laws were tighter if the five people who are now dead would have returned home in one piece.
But we will never know, will we?
May their memory be a blessing. Z”L.

Oh. Dear Lord. I have not watched the news in days and hadn’t heard that. It’s beyond heartbreaking. Sigh. 💙
