Good Tuesday Morning...

It seems so silly, or callous to be posting an outfit of the day without acknowledging the horribly violent massacre in Orlando this past weekend. It angers me tremendously that such horrific tragedies happen, but moreover the aftermath that goes along with it.  The finger pointing, the political agendas, the blame game.  This is a time as Americans we should come together and recognize that regardless of your color or creed, what happened in Orlando was an awful, senseless tragedy, as was Newtown, San Bernardino, Aurora and many, many others. We are so hung up on who was targeted and who pointed the gun to execute the killings, but what it boils down to is 50 American lives were lost, and 53 Americans were injured, by another American born man. What is the Answer? How do we stop these mass shootings, and hate toward one another?  

On Sunday night as I watched the TONY awards honoring the best of Broadway I was so moved by the acceptance speech of Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda...




'...That nothing here is promised, not one day.
This show is proof that history remembers
We lived through times when hate and fear seemed stronger;
We rise and fall and light from dying embers, remembrances that hope and love last longer
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.'
 We should not have to be reminded by these acts to tell one another we love each otherWe should appreciate one another and not take friends and loved ones for granted. 
Exercise tolerance, compassion and most of all LOVE.
