Such a tragedy to die for being one's self. Hate and bigotry are easier to come by than love and acceptance. That is why we must all strive to teach that love and acceptance, to replace those lesser, baser aspects of our Humanity.
My thought are with those that have been affected by such evil.
"And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God."
