Loss in Orlando – personal

I was friends with a male-female couple who were killed in Orlando.  They weren’t gay, but they were friends with people who were.  They were celebrating a birthday.  I just learned of their passing and I’m not sure how to feel about it.  I do feel something.

I feel a sense of loss.  I feel angry that some jerk with unresolved issues and a homophobic father felt the need to express his self-hatred on innocent people.  I’m angry that two people I considered friends (albeit, online friends) have been taken from me for stupid, selfish reasons.  I realize my reasons are selfish, but that’s how I feel.  It’s what I feel.

I think I chose the wrong words, above… “not sure how to feel”… I know how to feel about it.  I know what I feel about it.  I guess I’m at a loss for how to vent it and express it.

I am saddened and angered.  I won’t be drinking in their honor, but I will find a way to respect them and the impact they had on my life.

Thank you for reading.  I’ll post a game update in the next few days.
