And Then

I thought today was a great day.

I got up.

I was excited about the sunniness of it

I was excited about the heat of it.

I was excited about just going.

I was with a friend.

I was exclaiming joyfully about the exhilaration I felt being out

The sun burning

The sky bluing

And then…


We stopped.

And I learned

That this day that I thought was so great

Wasn’t so great after all.

I was so wrong.

Horrified and heart broken for Orlando families and friends.
