Pulse: We are all Connected!


“Only God can turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph, a victim into a victory.” ~Unknown

The aftermath of the Pulse tragedy weighs heavily on my mind. It was a crime of hate and Yes! It is a “Hate Crime!” On the news, as reported, an act of terrorism, but this individual hated people of a different culture, lifestyle.

My son’s friends died in that tragedy; his friends invited him out that night, but a little twist of fate kept him from going. He was celebrating a friend’s birthday, and he almost canceled with her to meet his friends. Little did he know that it would be the last time. I came close to losing my son that night. It just makes me value those around me even more. My son is grieving the loss of his friends, Juan and Drew. My heart is full of sadness; all those young souls that will no longer have their families, friends love on them ever again.

We must all strive for love and not hate. Every human on our planet connects to all walks of life. We all bleed the same; we are made up of blood, blood-red with flesh on our bones. 

Get rid of the labels, the status quo. Let us rebuild, move forward, and mourn for those we have lost and celebrate how they lived!

We are Orlando Strong!

I am a writer at heart. My love for writing was discovered back in 2009. I truly believe that it is never too late to discover your passion. I am originally from the Bronx of New York and presently reside​ in Kissimmee, Florida since 1994. My interest is vast with a multitude of ideas. I look forward to writing about them and I hope you will join me as I express my views, ideas, and passion for life.
