Pride Star

This Pride Star stands outside the Arlington Museum of Art in Texas. I visited there yesterday and enjoyed a unique photo exhibit. However, the star caught my eye.

Seems appropriate as we reflect on Orlando

It's sad that I've had to write this before - words fail me

  1. Hi Joanne - as Robyn says ... there are no words - it is utterly senseless and so so desperately sad. Hilary

  2. The sadness is so great. I have never understood the need to control how others live their lives. It makes no sense. Thank you.

  4. My heart is broken. And did you see that another wack job was going to try and attack the gay pride parade in I think San Diego or LA? :(

  7. So many young lives lost; reading their names as they release more victims' names; just so sad. Each one had family and friends that loved them and will mourn them for the rest of their lives.

  8. thanks everyone for your comments. It's a bit like group therapy - at least we have our words.

  9. No group should have to fear being mowed down and killed like that. I hate the backlash this will start about guns. The crazys and hateful will always get ahold of weapons. Or they will make bombs, start a fire, etc. On the positive side, since our government is currently so in love with gays, if it proves out this did stem from some kind of radical muslim belief, perhaps it will finally spur our government to make a stronger stand against it. Genocide goes on because of it, and they ignore. Christians are exterminated because of it, and they ignore it. Maybe these deaths won't be for nothing.

  10. Yes, so sad. That star is very touching. I've had to turn off the news because it's just too tragic. The good news is, Trump's response has caused him to plummet in the polls, looks like. NOT surprisingly, people want a leader who shows compassion. (Not to get into politics--his comments about the tragedy have just really bothered me.)
