Thank you for writing this. One of the most honest writings I’ve read recently about the shooting. I had never visited Pulse here in Orlando, but one decision could have put me there.
I sat at another Orlando bar the next night, a normally tiny subset of O-town’s LGBT scene, watching people I’d never seen pouring into the bar to just hug someone. All kinds, an elderly lesbian couple, some straight millennials, leathermen; each one wearing white ribbons. It is still so surreal.
