A Tribute Post For The Victims Of The #OrlandoShooting

June 13, 2016

The thoughts of all at Same Difference are with all the family members and friends of those who tragically lost their lives in the Orlando nightclub shooting.

They were sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and partners. They were nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

Murderers don’t realise this, but the real crime of murder is not the lives that they end through their actions. The real crime of murder is the shattered relationships- the shattered hearts- that their victims leave behind, through the actions of their killers.

RIP the Orlando 50.

Our thoughts are also with the worldwide LGBT community. As most know by now, the nightclub where the shooting took place was an LGBT one. Tonight, the LGBT community would be forgiven for feeling that their whole community has been attacked for being different. Their community have lost 50 members for no good reason. And we cannot forget that many members of the worldwide LGBT community are disabled, too.

We at Same Difference know how we feel every time we hear of the death of a disabled person. Every single one hits us hard.

From the members of one minority community to the members of another, we send solidarity, thoughts, prayers and this little blog post as a tribute to those your community has lost.

RIP the Orlando 50.
