And So, The Fourth Year Begins…
Hello there again, yesterday I attended a birthday party for my little cousin, who turned 4 years old. He received a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume, in which he looked very cute.
Yesterday was a strange day. Even though I had lots of fun at the birthday party, I still spent a lot of time thinking about the recent events in Orlando, which made me, and still makes me, extremely upset. Even though I wasn’t directly affected by the shooting, the subject of it all is still something that’s very, very close to my heart, and it truly breaks it to know that there are so, so many people want me, and all of my LGBPT siblings dead. No matter how proud I am of who I am, I will never truly be safe in this world, and those people where in the one place where they could be themselves among others just like them, where they were supposed to be safe, and someone decides to end their lives.
I’m not sure what to say or what to do, but the victims of the shooting will always be in my heart, and I will continue to fight for our rights to be who we are, and love who we want until I take my last breath.
