Being "the Other"
I just talked by phone with my daughter Emme (who is gay) and was on her way to the vigil in downtown Los Angeles. The horror, the sadness, the confusion, the fear - among other feelings - that she, at 29, has experienced yesterday and today are ghastly. The cause of these emotions - LGBTQ-phobia, murderous lack of acceptance of "the other," & the pathological immaturity of a culture that permits war weapons in civilian & disturbed hands - is appalling & outrageous.
