The Best Facebook Posts Regarding the Orlando Shooting


I am angry. I am heartbroken. I am distraught.

I want to write about it. I want to write about it in a way that will make my feelings known in a clear and easily understood way. But right now, that isn't happening. Right now, I am writing tirades. I am writing rants.

I want to post something eloquent and meaningful on social media. But right now, I can't. All I can do is fight the urge to call out the stupidity and ignorance of people I have called friends for a long time.

Instead, I thought the easiest thing to do would be share some of the more moving, poignant, and thoughtful posts of my friends. These posts capture the exact thing I would like to say, and I am so happy to have friends who can speak on my behalf.

As Silas House said, "When we are not part of the love, we're part of the problem."


  1. I am just so sad by all of this.
    Sending you so much love.

  2. Keith,

    I am not nearly as well spoken as you, and I too am struck mute by the myriad feelings with which I'm overwhelmed. A sentence attributed to Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce comes to mind as describing most closely my feelings: "I am tired; my heart is sick and sad."

    But we will go on from this, too. We will keep loving. We will keep striving. Yes, we will keep marching and dancing. Even I might dance, and that, Keith, is a terrifying thought!

    I send you love.
