Already emotional as I began to read the list of the innocent victims, I became numb when I saw my own last name: Morris.

For me, it was, yet, another reminder that we are all so connected to this tragedy more than we will ever know.

Love and light,


Love and light sent to Orlando and to all grieving.

    A very nice tribute to the victims of a horrible and senseless tragedy. My heart is heavy as is most of the community across the globe. Let us all stand together in Love and Pride. xoxo

    Thank you for posting the names. We need to remember these are people, not numbers. These were someone’s sons, daughters, friends, lovers, parents…

    I appreciate you, Tony!
