Orlando

Rainbow flag and blue skies

Don’t show me his face and just refer to him as the shooter.

I don’t want to see any grinning selfies of the shooter or hear about his life in anyway. That is the job for law enforcement. I also don’t care to hear anything from a particular presidential candidate who continues to pander to the ugliest side of humanity.

I want to hear the stories and see photos of the 49 people who were taken. I want to hear stories of the doctors and medical staff who are caring for the surviving victims.

I want to see images of the vigils and demonstrations throughout the world in support of the LGBT community.

I want to see photos of the people in Orlandos standing in long lines to donate blood for the victims.

These are the faces I want to see, these are the stories I want to hear.
