Hi everyone. I was sad to wake up to the news of the mass shooting at Pulse, a gay Orlando nightclub, early this morning. As of right now, 50 are dead and more than 50 are injured. USA Today is calling the shooting the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Gay, straight, Muslim, etc., it doesn’t matter…we are all human. This tragedy affects many people. It makes me wonder if it’s even safe to go anywhere at night or even in the daytime anymore? It makes me wonder what else is going to change in this world. I’m somewhat at a loss for words. My condolences and heart go out to those who are affected.
This is a little off-topic but lately a few have asked and wondered if I’m gay. They asked me if I was gay because I’ve been posting Pride Month events and interviews. Since I’m pretty open about my life here, I don’t mind sharing this with you. The answer is no, I’m not gay. I have loved ones who are and I support their lifestyle 100 percent. Even though I’ve had a lot of turmoil in previous relationships with males, I’m still in a relationship with one. Like all relationships, we also have issues to work through. We’re doing the best we can at this time. People have asked if I’m happy with him and the answer is yes. Has it always been easy to be together? Hell no! But…it’s hard to picture my life without him. We have a few but not too many interests in common but…what can I say? I fell for him pretty hard over the last three years.
“One” has many interpretations. Bono vaguely described it as a song about relationships. The song was released back in 1991. U2 recorded and wrote the song in Berlin. The Berlin Wall had just fallen. The band members weren’t getting along at the time. However, this song and their album, “Achtung Baby” (the song this album is on and one of my favorites of theirs) reunited them. This is one of my all-time favorite songs. I thought it would be appropriate to share it with you today, during a time of tragedy. Again, my heart goes out to those who are affected.
