I have no words to describe how I have been feeling over this past week. My heart has been slowly breaking; breaking for the people who died, their families, Christina's friends and families, the world.
There are just bad people in this world, and they see things differently to us. They can do things without being in their right mind. They can do things because their religion requires it. But they can also do things purely because they want to hurt, and to kill. And it breaks my heart that so many people, who had so much to live for and so much to do in their lives murdered in a place of safety.
If you're not sure what I'm talking about, on June 12 a gunman stormed a gay nightclub in Orlando and gunned down as many innocent people as he could. Around 50 people were killed and about the same number seriously injured. Two days prior, at a concert also in Orlando, 22 year old Christina Grimmie was shot whilst signing autographs after her performance. (You might remember her from The Voice in 2014) after committing the act, the gunman was tackled by Christina's brother, and then proceeded to kill himself. Christina died in hospital later that night.
I don't live in Orlando, not would I classify myself as a fan of Christina, but I am still so heartbroken over the deaths of all these innocent people. My prayers go to their friends and families, and I am grieving with them and the rest of America from the other side of the world.
Just imagine what would happen if everyone in the world was a little bit nicer.
Lots of love, Little Robin
